St Kevin's Educational and Sports Facilities
In 2016, Brent Gordon of Dalton Consulting Engineers (DCE) addressed 12d
Conference delegates about an exciting project for educational and sports
facilities at St Kevin’s College in Melbourne. DCE is a privately-owned civil
engineering consultancy with a growing global footprint. They specialise in
three core areas of expertise: urban development, infrastructure and sport.
The college bought the 5.4ha site – one with a rich and varied history – in
2012, and had a variety of land development requirements.
St Kevin’s bought the former Coles carpark site in 2012…by bike or car it’s less
than 10min from the school, so it had appeal. It’s now the largest privately
owned Fully Synthetic Facility in Australasia.
challenges for the site included:
This 5.4 hectare site comprises:
3 x FIFA Soccer Pitches – 100m x 60m
An incorporated AFL Football Field – 135m x 110m
FIH Hockey Field with tennis courts
200m Athletic Track
High Jump Facilities
2 x Long Jump Facilities
Shot Put facilities
2 x pavilion and storage facilities
Gardiners Creek Bike Track
The facility opened in 2017, to great local acclaim.
