Pilbara News - - Property - Louise Alling­ham

WA con­struc­tion com­pany Pin­dan has re­ceived a top gong for its work on the Dampier Com­mu­nity Hub at the Kim­ber­ley-Pil­bara Master Builders Bankwest Build­ing Ex­cel­lence Awards.

At the pre­sen­ta­tion at Zan­ders Restau­rant in Broome on Satur­day, May 6, Pin­dan came out on top in the best com­mer­cial al­ter­ations, ad­di­tions and restora­tions over $6.5 mil­lion cat­e­gory for the com­mu­nity hub project.

Pin­dan Con­tract­ing man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Tony Ger­ber said the award was the re­sult of Pin­dan’s long-stand­ing com­mit­ment to the Pil­bara and the com­pany’s pres­ence in the re­gion over many years.

“Re­ceiv­ing this ac­co­lade con­firms the trust re­gional and re­mote com­mu­ni­ties have in Pin­dan to de­liver projects of the high­est qual­ity,” he said.

Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Ge­or­gia Evans said the hub had be­come the heart of the Dampier com­mu­nity. The Dampier Com­mu­nity Hub has en­abled the co-lo­ca­tion of im­por­tant com­mu­nity ser­vices such as med­i­cal, li­brary, child­care, lo­cal gov­ern­ment and the Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, as well as sev­eral com­mu­nity groups who reg­u­larly use the multi-pur­pose rooms,” she said.

Pin­dan was con­tracted by the City of Kar­ratha to carry out the works on the Dampier Com­mu­nity Hub project, which was com­pleted in Septem­ber.

The hub in­cludes an early learn­ing cen­tre, a pub­lic li­brary, a cafe kiosk and a multi-pur­pose cen­tre, as well as the re­fur­bish­ment of the ex­ist­ing com­mu­nity hall.
