The Manning Community Hub was a multi-million dollar project with a vision to create a new ‘heart’ for Manning. The finished facility provides the community with a vibrant, connected and attractive precinct that integrates community services and social activities. The new facility adjoins James Miller Oval and is centrally located close to the Welwyn Avenue shops, the Manning Senior Citizens Centre and Manning Primary School.
The facility houses the relocated Manning Library, a community hall, Manning Child Health Clinic, Moorditj Keila Aboriginal Group, a sporting clubroom to house the Manning Rippers Football Club, and an early years centre that houses both the Manning Community Toy Library and a new Manning Playgroup.
The design of the development has a complex blend of finishes and layouts to stand out from the crowd. The superior external design philosophy is transferred internally with a series of complex, high level finishes fusing colours, textures and product type, from DecorSlat slatted timber panels to the SmartLook DecorTrend installed on the raked ceiling in the library for added WOW factor.
