Our Perth engineers are volunteering their time with Australia’s Bridge to deliver the All Abilities Play Space at Beaton Park, Perth. Local community groups have been working hard to raise funds and awareness, with Australia’s Bridge providing the link to skilled engineers who can bring the project to life.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2017 at the picturesque Nedlands foreshore. The project gives our engineers the opportunity to use their skills to deliver a project that will have a big impact on the children and families who will enjoy the Play Space. WGE have provided pro-bono services to bring this innovative project to life. The space is purpose-designed to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities.
The project has received funding from Lotterywest, the Rotary Clubs of Nedlands, Subiaco, West Perth and Matilda Bay, Inclusion WA, Wood and Grieves Engineers and Australia’s Bridge.
In May 2017, Margot Matthews from Australia’s Bridge and Cheryl Jennings from Subiaco Rotary Club visited WGE’s Perth office to talk about the impact the project, allowing families to enjoy time together in a safe and inclusive environment.
