A major resource to growing community

The Wentworth Point Community Centre and Library (WPCCL) in Western Sydney is open.

WPCCL is a dynamic, multipurpose community hub offering a range of benefits and resources for residents and businesses. Situated at the heart of Wentworth Point, a bustling community along the Parramatta River, the new two-level facility offers a state-of-the-art library and community centre space for the public.

The City of Parramatta Council officially opened WPCCL on Sunday 15 December with a gala day.

This $13million priority project is part of the City of Parramatta Council’s provision of public amenities to address the needs of a growing community at Wentworth Point – located in the western shore of Homebush Bay on the southern side of the Parramatta River.

Located under and between a series of high rise residential buildings, the new facility will house a diverse range of amenities including:

  • Contemporary library services
  • Multiple, flexible community meeting rooms and mini conference capabilities
  • An artist studio and exhibition space
  • Music practice rooms
  • Cafe
  • Co-working areas for local micro-business operators
  • A forecourt that can be used for local community events and functions

For Andy Richards, Rork Projects NSW GM, the opening of the WPCCL concluded an intense but rewarding works programme.

“Due to the 3,850m² project being handed over as a true ‘cold shell’, full BIM was utilised to document and manage the installation of all services within an incredibly tight ceiling plenum,” he said.

“Aside from full services installation and detailed high end fitout, other scope included installation of three interconnecting staircases; a glass shaft passenger lift; commercial kitchen; dance studios; significant public amenities; community rooms and full library incorporating RFID and shelving systems.

“This project has proudly demonstrated and confirmed Rork Projects’ capability and proficiency to deliver high quality, multi-layer projects.”
