The Wedderburn Community Hub is located on the former site of the historic Wedderburn Primary School in rural Victoria. This masterplan and feasibility study gave us the opportunity to work with council and local residents to identify and explore key opportunities for the site. We worked in association with community consultation experts, LMH Consulting to understand and balance the needs of local community groups, council development parameters and potential funding constraints.
Our masterplan proposes a series of interlocking modules which can be constructed in multiple stages and tailored to achieve project budget as funding becomes available. Each module is designed to be a freestanding building with clear span roof structure to enable them to be flexible and easily adapted for future uses. Modules are connected by enclosed or open air walkways with controlled points of entry.
At completion the hub will incorporate the following facilities:
Neighbourhood House Administration
Multi-purpose Community Meeting Spaces
District Health Services
Job Network Services
Maternal Child Health Services
Tourist Information Centre
Art and Craft Facilities
