CURRAMBINE’S community centre and Delamere Park have been recognised as two of WA’s best-managed sustainable projects.

The City of Joondalup has been given the general project management award for the sustainable category at the 2015 Project Management Achievement Awards .

The Currambine Community Centre and design of Delamere Park were delivered in-house by the City’s asset management and operation services teams.

Among other things, the centre features rainwater harvesting for recycling, low water consumption appliances, natural lighting, louvered windows to encourage natural cross ventilation and a courtyard with native plants that require minimal irrigation, limestone rocks excavated from the site during construction and other recycled materials.

Delamere Park was designed for passive recreational use with large grassed areas, a playground with nature play and traditional equipment, adult fitness equipment, an amphitheatre and sheltered picnic and barbecues areas, an automated toilet facility, bicycle racks and CCTV network. The City will now progress to the national finals in Tasmania next month.
