Ireland Brown Constructions was appointed the successful contractor to construct the new single storey Childcare Centre in Waurn Ponds for Goodstart Early Learning.
The site was cleared of the existing buildings the services disconnected prior to the construction. Access to the site was via a gravel road, from Nicol Drive South.
The centre was constructed to replace the existing childcare centre at Deakin University and now includes multiple flexible rooms, staff areas, office and amenities. IBC had also been contracted to complete the landscaping portion of the works. This involved the construction of age specific play areas which will incorporated soft and hard landscaping, cubby houses, seating and other multiple play structures.
Due to the location of the site within areas of access and operation for the university, IBC were required to co-ordinate any work on the utilities with the Deakin Facility Services Division to ensure no disruptions to students or staff occurred.
