Designed by longtime City Beach resident, Noel Chrystal, Partner in Johnson and Chrystal Architects, the Floreat Surf Life Saving Club was constructed in 1981. Despite the challenging coastal environment, the structure remains in good condition, testament to its robust design. The roof cover was renewed in 2016, and now the building interior, exterior, and services, are due for renewal.

The Floreat Surf Life Saving Club have been engaging with the Town regarding the need to improve disability access to, and within the Floreat Surf Life Saving Club building. A disability access audit has identified a number of disability access issues that impact users of the facility.

This project will both renew furnishings and improve accessibility, ensuring the facility can better accommodate the Club’s current and future members and enhance their service to the community as they keep Floreat Beach safe.
