Ireland Brown Constructions (IBC) will build the New Sports and Wellbeing Centre at Korowa Anglican Girls’ School which is valued at $30m.
The multimillion-dollar centre will take 18 months to develop and will include an expansive indoor basketball court, 25-metre indoor swimming pool, staff and student support facilities, rooftop sports court, indoor exercise space and civil landscaping.
The project consultants include Accuraco Pty Ltd, Sally Draper Architects, Mitsuori, IrwinConsult, Taylor Cullity Lethlean, Marshall Day and Wilde & Woollard.

Also, they are currently building the Fulham Correctional Centre Expansion Project which is valued at $65m. In completion, this will increase site facilities to 1,000 beds for inmates.
With the projected increased government spend in various sectors IBC are well placed as an institutional builder with experience in Justice & Corrections, Sports & Aquatic, Health, Aged Care and Local Government; recent completed projects include Springvale Community Precinct ($40M), Deakin University – Specialised Indoor Exercise and Sports Science Building ($30m) and Ocean Grove SLSC ($10m).
There appears to be cautious optimism amongst builders that despite the current worldwide pandemic Victoria is well placed to weather the storm with several projects greenlit across the state.
