Ireland Brown Constructions were 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 and 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 were contracted to complete the landscaping portion of the works. This involved the construction of age specific play areas which incorporated soft and hard landscaping, cubby houses, seating and other multiple play structures.

Due to the location of the site, IBC were required to carefully co-ordinate any work on the utilities with the Deakin Facility Services Division to ensure no disruptions to students or staff occurred.
