Wantirna South Early Years Hub

Location: Wantirna South, VIC
Contractor: Corbitt Mechcanical

Knox City Council is currently consolidating its existing childcare services into a new state-of-the-art multipurpose children’s hub. Located in the Melbourne suburb of Wantirna South, the $11 million early years’ hub is set to be “one of the best” in Australia. This multi-purpose hub will bring together a range of services for young children all in the one place, covering all their needs from birth to school-going age.

These will include the provision of long day-care, four-year-old preschool, maternal child health, occasional care, and playgroup services. The facility will also contain a basement carpark and ample outdoor play spaces.

Knox’s biggest challenge was providing its tiny patrons with sufficient fresh air while also meeting the heating, cooling and indoor air quality requirements commensurate with a vibrant, dynamic facility of this nature.Call to Action 1_Small
