A well-known Wishaw community hub is to get a makeover costing more than £200,000.

Work will begin on refurbishing Pather Community Centre in February with the total cost of the project totalling £210,000.

The council, together with partners Procast, are replacing all windows, installing security shutters and undertaking roof repairs as and where required.

NLC say this is essential works that will also help improve the energy efficiency of the building.

A council spokesperson said: “Refurbishment work is due to start at Pather Community Centre in February, as part of a Culture and Leisure North Lanarkshire’s capital investment programme.

“The £210,000 project will see new windows and security shutters installed as well as repairs to the roof, ensuring the building is maintained to a high standard and making it more energy efficient.

“The work will take 12 weeks to complete.”

The building is situated just off a busy B-road in the town, with a bus stop immediately outside the main door of the premises – so Procast will draw on their expertise of delivering high-profile projects in busy or “live” environments.

Because most of the works will be at height while the building remains operational throughout the makeover, careful management will be critical and safety paramount.

Pather Community Centre plays a huge role in the life of the local community.

Prior to lockdown, activities which took place there included senior citizen events, bingo, art groups, church activities, support groups, councillor surgeries, dance classes, music classes, social functions and clinics.

The refurbishment project, commissioned by North Lanarkshire Council, is similar in nature to two other programmes of works

successfully completed recently by Procast – Macadam House in Ayr and Mountblow Pavilion in Clydebank.

A Procast spokesman said: “This is a great opportunity to support North Lanarkshire Council’s investment in this property by the successful completion of external fabric improvement works.”
