The Gawler Civic Centre redevelopment is the Town of Gawler's largest local community infrastructure project - transforming the iconic and culturally significant State Heritage listed Town Hall and Institute buildings to create an architecturally significant hub for government, economic and social enterprise.
Consideration of the heritage and importance of both
buildings has been at the forefront of this project and the final outcome will
be one that provides our community with an appropriately remediated and
structurally sound asset for many years to come.
This redevelopment will contain six functional areas that
are set to collectively drive significant economic development in the greater
Gawler region – Public Library, Cultural Heritage Centre, Multifunction
rooms, Youth area, Business Innovation Hub, and a Social Enterprise Café.
Gawler Civic Centre will showcase local and regional
cultural heritage, provide support to start-up and existing businesses, house a
contemporary library, be a centre for visual and performing arts and include
youth programs to facilitate 21st century learning and community wellbeing.
From community groups, service clubs, the business community, local artists, to young people, senior citizens and library groups…Gawler Civic Centre promises to provide something for everyone.

The Gawler Civic Centre redevelopment project was awarded to Badge Constructions (SA) Pty Ltd, in March 2017. Further information here.
Unfortunately there will be no pedestrian access along the western side of High Street during the Gawler Civic Centre Redevelopment. However, the footpath on the eastern side of High Street has been recently upgraded to maintain pedestrian access.
A temporary fence will be placed along the centre of High Street to create a secure building site. Traffic signals are being erected to ensure that the two-way flow of vehicles is maintained throughout construction.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause but these traffic management measures are key to delivering a safe and successful redevelopment.
The Town of Gawler has worked closely with MPH Architects to develop the final plans and imagery for the Gawler Civic Centre.
