New Fairfield Library and Business Hub
- Project typeConstruction of new Fairfield Library and Business Hub
- Project scheduleThe new library is scheduled for completion by end of 2020
Fairfield City Council will deliver a new library for the families of Fairfield in 2020.
Work has begun on the $2.5 million project at 1-3 Hamilton Road. Construction crews carried out internal demolition work to prepare the 1,000 sqm space to be transformed into a high standard community facility, with greater access to Council services.
The two-storey building will also allow future expansion of the new library as the need arises. It will replace the current library at Kenyon Street, which is less than 600 sqm in size.
The Kenyon Street site will be repurposed into a $1.5 million business hub with additional community spaces. Work at Kenyon Street will begin as soon as the new library at Hamilton Road is open to minimise disruption to library users.
The new business hub will provide work desks, internet and wifi access; as well as spaces for meetings and seminars, to support the needs of Fairfield’s growing start-up business community. It will also offer additional flexible spaces to provide for the community’s needs.
The new library is scheduled for completion in late 2020.
