Juanita Nielsen Community Centre

Growthbuilt was tasked with the complete restoration of this heritage listed building – including restoring the original stone exterior. The building was completely gutted and new internal floors and a lift added. Built in memory of the missing advocate Juanita Neilsen, elements of the building such as the staircase reflect her actual appearance.
