Woodcroft Community Centre

Delivering Community Atmosphere

This extensive project scope involved a comprehensive redesign and expansion of the neighbourhood centre, library, carpark, landscape areas and bus interchange to meet the increasing needs of the local City of Onkaparinga community.

SHAPE was engaged to deliver this project, which spanned a number of different sectors including retail, office fitout, hospitality, education, and a commercial kitchen.

The client was primarily concerned with integrating sustainable solutions, value engineering to allow the project to go ahead, fostering community involvement, as well as the early completion of the library component to allow for six weeks of stacking books prior to the community centre opening.

This project was awarded the:

  • 2011 National Excellence in Building and Construction Award for Best National Public Building $5 million to $10 million
  • 2011 South Australian Master Builders Association Building Excellence Award for Excellence in a Commercial Refurbishment/Redevelopment over $5 million.

Given the project was originally programmed to take fourteen months, to reopen this centre in under eleven months once the occupants vacated in May 2010, was an outstanding achievement by SHAPE.
