3MDR is pleased to announce it has received some funding support to make the Forest Park Homestead more comfortable throughout the year with a major project.
Forest Park Homestead will soon be fitted out with energy efficient heating and cooling units throughout the 9 rooms occupied by 3MDR for the radio station operations.
The CBF’s Bright Futures funding was a “one off” opportunity to assist stations with energy efficiency. We engaged an Energy Foundation consultant to provide recommendations to support the grant application.
Along with individually controlled split system heating/cooling units being installed in every room, 3MDR also secured funding to fully insulate the roof space and block the drafts through the chimney’s, doors and windows.
The 3MDR volunteers will be raring to go as soon as Stage 4 and other inhibiting restrictions are lifted to get the insulation into the roof space...just in time for the looming summer months.
The aforementioned works will really “Activate The Space” and provide a comfortable environment for everyone who attends the radio station.
In addition to the Bright Futures funding the CBF has also provided funds to assist 3MDR with operating and staffing costs.
