Client Problem:

Curlew Community Park was undergoing a redevelopment as a result of Hobsons Bay City Council’s extensive community consultation. New pathways and gardens would be created within the park.

It was determined that a toilet building would also be required to accommodate the anticipated increase in usage.

 

Specifications:

The upgrade would require two unisex stalls, with storage and service areas at the rear of the building. The rear of the building would feature a mural reflecting the natural environment of the area.

 

Contractors:

JMAC Constructions were appointed by Hobsons Bay City Council as the head contractor for the park redevelopment.

Hobsons Bay City Council contracted Martyn Zdanius from Land Projects as the Landscape architect for the project.

ASCO was appointed by Martyn Zdanius from land projects to design, manufacture and install the public amenities building.

The artist for the mural was Melbourne-based illustrative artists Ness Fett, who has been responsible for a variety of murals throughout Victoria.

 

Challenges:

The use of corrugated internal cladding increases surface area which provides more space for airborne bacteria to settle. This adds complexity to the maintenance and cleaning process.

The corrugations also create spaces for dirt, insects, and waste to gather which impacts the user experience. ASCO took time and care to remove these gaps. Flat internal cladding also provided a stronger fixing point for the sanitary and washroom fittings.

Both measures ensure long-term cost savings due to lower ongoing maintenance costs.

Whilst there were challenges on site relating to the soil conditions, the Stellar® S2020 toilet building was delivered and installed on schedule, without any unexpected costs or time delays.

 

Timeline:

In late 2018, ASCO was approached by Martyn Zdanius of Land Projects to supply and install a Stellar® S2020 Toilet Building at Epsom Reserve in Laverton, Victoria.

This project was completed in August 2019 as part of a Hobsons Bay City Council redevelopment including renaming the reserve to Curlew Community Park.

 

Result:

The result was a well-designed multi-functional space for the Laverton Community.

In December 2019, a celebration was held to officially open the new and improved community space.
Since, it was been regularly enjoyed by the community and visitors alike.
