This 1st Stage of the Project referred to as "The Laying Of The Slab" has been entirely funded by two Grants.

Initial funding was provided by The NSW Goverment 2011 Community Building Partnership Program 
and this was backed up by a Grant from the Coffs Harbour City Council Community Capital Infrastructure Grant Program 2015-2016.

The Men's Shed extends a big Thank You to both the NSW Government and the Coffs Harbour City Council for these Grants.

Stage 1 consists of:

  • Signing the Licence Agreement for the land (Signed 26th Feb 2016)

  • Preparing the site including levelling, sewerage, drainage, water and electricity 

  • Preparing the site for concrete ie. laying of re-inforcing steel, putting in cable conduits and plumbing points

  • Pouring the concrete
