Kapiti council shows off new digs
The interior of Kapiti Coast District Council’s new headquarters has been revealed in a tour for councillors today.
The building refurbishment, part of what has been touted as an $8.1 million civic centre upgrade, is one of two major council projects - running alongside the Coastlands Aquatic Centre build, frozen last week due to the Mainzeal collapse.
Community services group manager Tamsin Evans said the $5.5m headquarters has come in on time and budget – and is set to open open for business on Monday, March 4.
Council staff will relocate from their temporary headquarters at the former Whitireia Polytechnic complex in Lindale, over the preceding weekend, she said.
The community will have a chance to inspect the work up close, with an open day running this Saturday from 10am till 2pm.
