ACO BuildLine – threshold drainage

Manning Community Hub, Manning, WA

The Manning Community Hub is a precinct that integrates community services and social activities south of Perth. The project costing $17 million was in response to a study stating that existing community facilities were at the end of their useful life. The centre comprises a new state-of-the-art Library, Community Hall, Aboriginal Community Centre, Child Health Clinic, Early Learning Centre incorporating a Toy Library and Play Group facility and the Manning Ripper Football Club. The Community Hub provides sustainable, modern, multi purpose spaces for groups and family services in one location. A 75 bay underground carpark maximises public open space for landscaping, public art and cultural activities.
