LINKS Youth Support Services Building: (2010-12)
For over ten years LINKS operated from a small cabin on the same site. The old cabin was a one-room space where youth workers would run programs, drop-ins and case management. The new facility has enabled the service’s capacity to be increased significantly. It has two bathrooms including one disabled, a kitchen area, a duel office space and medical examination area, as well as two meeting rooms. This building project was funded by the NSW State Government under the Community Building pool of funding.

San Remo Community Men’s Shed: (2008-9)
The Epicentre was the driving force behind the Men’s Shed in San Remo. The Shed was built after it became clear that there was a need within the community for a space where men could meet, chat and learn woodworking skills. The Shed is now its own incorporated association and is frequented by over 60 participants.
