2018-12-18 06:01

A R3m upgrade of the Sea Point Civic Centre is currently underway.

The work includes the replacement of the vinyl wallpaper in the interior of the hall; treatment of the timber flooring; improvements to the roofing and certain portions of ceiling surfaces, including bird-proofing; rehabilitation of the ablution blocks; and several minor sundry works to revitalise the facility, explains ward councillor Dave Bryant.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of June next year, in line with the City of Cape Town’s financial year.

The facility is currently considered a construction site and remains unavailable for use until completion of the works, adds Bryant.

The upgrade was approved after an assessment of various hall facilities by the City.

“The condition of the Sea Point hall was deemed as ‘critical’’ and was subsequently scheduled for repairs,” explains Bryant­.

The works currently being carried out at the facility are categorised as repair and maintenance works, he says.

“Given the nature of the facility, however, it presented an opportune moment to ensure as much of the generally inaccessible areas of the hall are included as part of the scope of works to maximise impact. The upgrades will improve the overall condition of the facility, after which it will again become available for use for events and other activities.”
