Hume City Council
This project was a bespoke pavilion to house the fast-growing Hume City FC.
Constructed in the brand-new Aston estate by Peet, Davidson Architecture worked closely with Hume City Council from project inception through to handover early this year.
Our understanding of ‘fit for purpose’ is well on display in this project. Materials are robust. The building is incredibly efficient due to the use of overhangs and low E transluscent roofing over the change areas. During construction, the builders were amazed at how cool both the conditioned and unconditioned areas remained during a heatwave.
Undercover external areas are maximised to enhance spectator viewing, and the kitchen and social room are large, multifunction spaces.
Critically, this project was brought in well within budget - so much so that the leisure manager at the Council joked that we had now made his job harder because the council would be expecting this level of value management on all their projects going forward.
