Gawler Civic Centre

Inside Of Civic Centre Draft

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.

Gawler Club - history and their temporary move from the Town Hall/Institute.

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.
