Nunawading Community Hub Takes Shape

The transformation of the former Nunawading Primary School site into the new Nunawading Community Hub is now well advanced with the distinctive “saw-tooth” shaped roofline and curved building perimeter clearly visible to people passing by.

Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Bill Bennett said the site is a hive of activity with the majority of trades working on all parts of the inside and outside of the building structure.

“It’s wonderful to see the hub taking shape as the future new home of Silver Grove, Nunawading user groups, including Council’s Meals on Wheels service,” Cr Bennett said.

“It’s also an exciting time for the broader Whitehorse community who will be able to make new connections and enrich their lives through the diverse array of learning, social and recreational opportunities on offer from the hub.”

Installation of the roofing, façade, glazing and internal services, such as electrical and mechanical systems, are progressing. Restoration works to the heritage building are also continuing.

The Nunawading Community Hub is being built to achieve a 5-star Green Star rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.
