Jimmy’s Pavilion

Overview

Fleetwood was contracted to deliver a state of the art wellbeing sanctuary to accommodate marginalised, disengaged and disadvantaged youth on the Mornington Peninsula (Victoria) by providing a safe place for young people to connect with trained, qualified staff and volunteers, as well as other young people. Design by CO-OP studios and constructed by Fleetwood the project was procured through a local charity known as Jimmy’s Foundation with the help of the YMCA Southern Peninsula Youth Services.

 

Solution

Located in the hub of the Peninsula’s retail strip, the bespoke double-storey permanent modular building required 16 modules (544 square metres) to be installed across a range of screw piles over two days. The building included a variety of spaces from meeting rooms for consultations, yoga rooms, a kitchen facility, social enterprise café, bedrooms with amenities, an entry deck to an outdoor open courtyard along with a multipurpose room and gallery hangout space for children to utilise during their stay.

A full turnkey solution covering all aspects of the delivery of the project was provided. Fleetwood was responsible for the initial site set-up, demolition of the existing office building and entry veranda and removal of asbestos prior to the new building being delivered. In addition to the delivery and installation of the new modular facility, Fleetwood completed further site works and landscaping as part of the project including the timber screen external façade, which was the main design feature of the building.

 

Benefits

Jimmy’s well-being centre will allow the local area of the Mornington Peninsula to assist young people by engaging them in holistic, complementary and current wellbeing practices, as well as skill-based learning to strengthen their mental, physical and emotional health, resilience and skill sets. The facility has been designed around embodying a singular piece of furniture. Something to be sat in, on and around that creates a welcoming and positive environment for years to come.
