Whitehorse City Council is transforming the former Nunawading Primary School site into a vibrant community hub; a place where people of all ages and backgrounds feel welcome and can come together to embrace new opportunities for learning, social interaction and getting active.
About the Project
Council bought the Springvale Road site from the state government in mid-2015, with a commitment to retain the land for the continued enjoyment and benefit of the entire Whitehorse community. The hub will be the future home of community groups and Council’s Meals on Wheels service, currently operating out of Silver Grove, Nunawading.
- refurbished heritage school building
- multi-functional classrooms and meeting rooms
- specially-fitted out spaces for dance, art, counselling and lapidary activities
- purpose-built Meals on Wheels facility
- communal kitchen with teaching area
- multipurpose sports stadium
- target 5 Star Green Rating (incorporating solar, water reuse, natural light, low energy, natural and durable materials)
- car parking areas for 200+ vehicles
- integration with Tunstall Park – landscaping, enhancement of open green spaces, new pedestrian and cycling paths, and areas for passive recreation.
The project is expected to take place from late 2018 to mid-2020. Throughout this period, Ireland Brown Constructions will keep local residents and other property owners informed of any changes to pedestrian or traffic movements, and mitigate against any potential construction impacts such as noise and dust, in accordance with their Construction Management Plan.
