Ivanhoe Grammar School
Peddle Thorp Architects
The Ivanhoe Grammar Plenty Campus Aquatic and Wellness Centre is aimed at enhancing the educational and recreational offerings of the school. This transformative project encompasses the development of a state-of-the-art aquatic and wellness centre, featuring two new pools, change facilities, multipurpose rooms, and a gymnasium. Additionally, it includes the construction of new outdoor sports facilities, comprising nine tennis courts, an artificial hockey pitch, and a new turf soccer pitch.
This project will be constructed at the heart of the Plenty Campus, seamlessly integrating with the school’s existing facilities. Its central location ensures easy access for students, staff, and the broader school community, and will serve as a vibrant hub for physical fitness, education, and engagement.
The scope of this project is comprehensive, covering the construction of the following key components:
- Aquatic facilities: The aquatic centre will house both a Learn to Swim pool and a 25-meter pool, complete with modern and spacious changing room facilities. These pools will serve as a cornerstone for aquatic education, training, and recreational activities within the school community.
- Wellness centre: The wellness centre will feature a well-equipped gymnasium, providing students and staff with a dedicated space for physical fitness and well-being. Additionally, four multi-use classrooms will be integrated into this space, offering flexibility for various educational and fitness programs
- Outdoor sports facilities: The project will extend beyond the indoor spaces, with the construction of nine new tennis courts, an artificial hockey pitch, and a new turf soccer pitch.
Our involvement in the initial Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) stage underscores our commitment to delivering a world-class facility that aligns with the school’s vision and objectives. During this stage, we worked closely with the school to collaborate on design, budgeting, and project planning, ensuring that the end result meets the highest standards and expectations.
