City of Melbourne Announces Funding Towards Kensington Recreation Centre Redevelopment
The City of Melbourne has processed the $42 million Kensington Recreation Centre redevelopment to the tender stage, and announced it will set aside $10.2 million to the project in its yearly budget.
Builders have been invited to tender for the build, which has been designed to focus strongly on sustainability.
The new centre has also been designed based on community feedback, and will feature flexible spaces, three full-size multipurpose courts and an improved 25 metre swimming pool.
Alongside the landmark facilities, the centre will be equipped with solar panels, water conservation measures, efficient heating and cooling systems and double glazing on all windows.
A green wall will encompass the building’s Altona Street side, and shade provided by landscaping will conserve energy.
ADCO, Buxton, Built Environs and McCorkell are all expected to compete for the project.
ADCO is currently constructing the Kew Recreation Centre, a $65 million redevelopment, part of the City of Boroondara’s commitment to renewing facilities to meet the evolving needs of its diverse community.
The scope of the project includes the construction of upgraded aquatic facilities, two indoor sports courts, a gym, cafe and other amenities designed to support full accessibility.
ADCO is also delivering the St Albans Health and Wellbeing Hub, a $51 million redevelopment which will see an Olympic-grade swimming pool, water slides, a gym and community facilities built.
The City of Melbourne is expected to select the winning builder later this year, with a commencement date to follow soon after.
The Kensington Recreation Centre is slated for completion and to be open and operational by the end of 2022.
