PINDAN has been ap­pointed to de­sign and con­struct stage 1 of the new $18.5 mil­lion Park­erville Chil­dren and Youth Care Stan & Jean Per­ron Child Ad­vo­cacy Cen­tre in Mid­land.

The first stage will see Pindan build the new cen­tre on the cor­ner of Water­tank Way and Gauge Road in the Mid­land Rail­way Workshops precinct.

The new cen­tre will fea­ture ther­apy con­sult­ing rooms, large fam­ily rooms, a spe­cially de­signed oc­cu­pa­tional ther­apy treat­ment room, WA Po­lice fa­cil­i­ties with spe­cial­ist child in­ter­view rooms, lec­ture the­atre, re­cep­tion area, meet­ing rooms, of­fice space, fully equipped gym, lunch room and bal­cony.

Pindan Busi­ness devel­op­ment man­ager James Allingame said the 4000sq m fa­cil­ity was due for com­ple­tion in mid-2019, with a sec­ond stage of the cen­tre to com­mence af­ter, in­volv­ing the ren­o­va­tion of two her­itage-listed build­ings into of­fices and a cafe.

“The new cen­tre will al­low for more chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies, to ac­cess ser­vices in the treat­ment of trauma from abuse,” he said.

The Depart­ment of Com­mu­ni­ties, Child Pro­tec­tion and Fam­ily Sup­port will also work with them.
