An old supermarket in Levin was perfectly located to convert into an expanded public library, and the extra space allowed for a whole raft of other community facilities to be included, all on a shoestring budget using local contractors and sub-contractors. The Client Contractor and the local community worked together to make this happen. $20,000 was raised by volunteers who stripped out the copper content of the old building to assist with the budget constraints. Finding asbestos in the roof early on in the Project also added to the budget pressures. Good team work and collaboration by all, resolved all these issues as they arose to produce a superb place of learning.
