Envision moving back to regular Estevan office

The Envision Counselling and Support Centre is moving back to its regular home, nearly three months after a malfunctioning sprinkler system forced them to relocate.

Movers have been working in the building on Friday, and Envision staff members have been relocating items from their temporary home. The Envision employees will continue with the moving efforts on Tuesday and Wednesday, and their regular Estevan location is expected to be open on Thursday.

Envision’s Estevan office will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, but their offices in Oxbow, Carlyle and Weyburn will be open.

“We are so excited,” said Lynda Rideout, the assistant executive director with Envision.

Envision was forced from their regular home in early June when the sprinkler system malfunctioned and flooded their building, as well as the building of a neighbouring church. They relocated to a site next to their present home in the 1300-block of Seventh Street.

Rideout said there were already desks in place at the temporary home, so that eased the transition.

Both employees and clients have coped well with the move.

“We were able to move in there and use the existing office equipment that was in there. So we were able to continue serving our clients relatively quickly, and that wasn’t as stressful as it could have been,” said Rideout.

Each counsellor had a private space for the clients to come to, but they didn’t have a board room like they did in their regular home.

Next week’s edition of the Mercury will have more on this story.
