Project summary

The City of Armadale received Australian Government funding to retrofit internal and external lighting and to upgrading ceiling insulation at the Champion Centre, Seville Grove, Western Australia.

Need for project

The City of Armadale is a medium sized regional council. The Champion Centre provides a culturally appropriate setting for the provision of services and programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Activities operated from the Centre are provided by agencies, non-profit organisations, Council staff and other community groups working in partnership with the City of Armadale. This project enhanced the thermal amenity of the Champion Centre whilst providing increased security for patrons and staff.
