Construction Award Announcement
At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on Monday 23rd August 2021, after a competitive tender process, Darebin Council awarded the construction contract for redevelopment of the Northcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre (NARC) to Kane Constructions Pty Ltd.
The new NARC will be a 6 Star Green Star rated facility: the highest rating possible in the Green Building Council of Australia’s sustainability rating system, demonstrating Council’s commitment to and leadership in responding to the climate emergency.
The design has been shaped by community consultation and completed by Warren and Mahoney Australia.
Darebin Council has also consulted significantly with the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation throughout the development of the design of the facility and the landscaping. Consultation remains ongoing throughout the project to achieve integrated outcomes.
