Bunnythorpe Community Centre project

In early January 2021, construction began on a dedicated community centre for Bunnythorpe.

The new centre opened its doors in October.

The centre, based on Raymond St, has a 168sqm hall, a small meeting room, a kitchen, changing rooms and bathrooms.  It’s been designed in a way that will enable expansion in the future.  

This community centre will become increasingly important as its community grows, playing a pivotal role in bringing people together to build a stronger connected community.   

The construction contract was awarded to Maycroft Construction, which has a strong presence in the Manawatū. Maycroft committed to using local subcontractors during the construction wherever it was able.  

The previous sportsfield building was demolished, and the new centre sits on top of that site. The sportsfield remained open throughout construction.
