Dunlop Pavilion in Malvern East services an outdoor recreation area and accommodates services for various community sporting groups.
The Malvern Sports Club (MSC) is the largest sporting club in the City of Stonnington and manages the Dunlop Pavilion Function room, which is used by the sporting clubs for social activities all year round. The function room is also used by the City of Stonnington and hired out for other community events.
The updated facility achieved the goals of improved user access and circulation, upgraded connection to adjacent spaces, maximising natural daylight, ventilation and water harvesting while minimising energy usage and maintenance requirements.
Enhanced facilities include female change rooms to accommodate the recent and projected future growth in female sport participation and to encourage gender equality by supplying specific amenities for women. The upgrades also include a social room, canteen and kiosk facilities and upgraded sporting club rooms.
ACOR Consultants worked with lead consultant William Ross Architects to provide Structural and Civil engineering for the full scope of work.
