Halifax to construct $7 million Beaverbank Kinsac Community Centre
The Halifax Regional Municipality announced it is preparing to start construction of the new Beaverbank Kinsac Community Centre, located north of Sackville, Nova Scotia.
The current facility was heavily damaged in a fire two years ago and the city is preparing to demolish the remains of the structure.
The new 4,365-square-foot community centre, which will cost $7 million, is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2012.
“The need to increase program requirements and address a number of deficiencies in the original facility has been recognized,” Halifax Regional Municipality stated in a press release. “These issues include security, building layout, air conditioning and fire suppression systems. The new facility will also be more accessible and energy efficient.”
The Halifax Regional Municipality encompasses the former cities of Halifax and Dartmouth, plus the former counties of Bedford and Halifax.
