Explore and interact with the new designs for Fawkner Leisure Centre.
Fawkner Leisure Centre is 1 of 6 Aquatic and Leisure Centres owned by Merri-bek City Council.
A 20-year Aquatic and Leisure Strategy was developed in 2018 to determine the future position of all six Merri-bek Aquatic and Leisure Facilities. Within this strategy, Fawkner Leisure Centre was flagged for redevelopment into a district-level facility due to its age.
We did extensive community consultation and concept planning for this development. A decision was then made based on community feedback and the project cost to deliver the project in 2 stages:
Stage 1 of the redevelopment will include:
Stage 2 of the redevelopment will include warm water program pool, an extension of changerooms, and a new family change hub.
Project Architect: Co-Op Studio has been working with us through the concept design and will continue as the architect throughout the project. They have extensive experience in designing community facilities with lasting social, economic, and environmental benefits.
Recent projects most recently including the Fitzroy Sports Centre and the Sunbury Aquatic Centre.
Project Builder: Built Environs have been appointed as the contract builder. They have extensive experience in delivering design and construction projects specific to aquatic, service-intense and complex facilities. The project team have delivered multiple aquatic centre projects including East Keilor Leisure Centre, Camberwell Grammar School Sports Centre, and the Junction Oval Redevelopment.
