Redován Town Council is to start converting the old municipal gymnasium into training classrooms. The Councillor for Education, Rebeca Martínez, explains that these facilities “will initially accommodate the students of the Sagrados Corazones School who have to move due to the extension work on this centre, and will then remain open for training courses which may be organised in our municipality by the Town Council or other institutions or organisations”.


The councillor for Town Planning, José Nájar, explained the work to be carried out, which involves the creation of six classrooms on the ground floor and first floor with their corresponding toilets and service areas. The constructed surface area of the project is 638.14 metres spread over the two floors. “On the ground floor there will be a covered access, the entrance and distribution, two toilets, a multi-purpose room and two classrooms, while on the first floor there will be a distributor that will serve two offices and four other classrooms”.


Basically, said Nájar, “it is about redistributing the current spaces to the existing educational needs of our municipality”, and among other things it will be provided with accessibility through a ramp and handrail at the entrance, change of lighting, review of electrical installations, plumbing and sanitation and placement of a security fence to prevent access to the existing staircase when leaving the centre.


Last Friday a visit was made to the facilities together with representatives of the company that is going to carry out the adaptation once the contract has been awarded so that work can begin in the next few days. This is the first phase of the project carried out by local architect Alejandra Fernández Mateo.
