The new Capability Development Division Building which is located within the Glen Waverley Police Academy grounds is a two-storey building consisting of classrooms, including specialised scenario room for training, meeting rooms, office spaces, and associated amenities.
The main features of the building include; glazed façade, metal cladding, composite timber cladding, sizeable female and male change areas, exposed aggregate pathways, a large canopy to the entry/external courtyards and a terrace overlooking back towards the main academy building.
The aim of the design was to enhance the presence of the main academy structure and existing landscape. This was achieved through the layout and positioning of the building and curving around the existing prestigious building.
As this project was procured via “true” design and construct methodology, IBC engaged the services of FMSA, Meinhardt and Outlines Landscape Architecture to complete the design that was submitted with our tender. Ireland Brown Constructions are pleased to have worked alongside both Victoria Police and TSA Management on this exciting project which was successfully completed on time and budget.
The Building received a High Commendation in the 2020 AIB Professional Excellence in Building and Construction Awards; $1 Million – $25 Million Category.
