Catholic Education Centre
In 2016, MCDF Architects in association with Chaney Architecture completed a detailed masterplan to demonstrate the capacity and potential of the existing Catholic Education Centre site in West Leederville. The masterplan proposes improved learning and training facilities on the site that will provide more appropriate, contemporary work space environments for the various management teams located at Leederville within adapted and refurbished buildings and new purpose built facilities.
An overall space planning strategy for existing and new accommodation at Leederville, rationalisation of car parking and vehicular access and a proposal for a new primary entry space linking existing and new buildings are proposed for the site.
The new Formation Centre greatly increases the area and functionality of the centre by creating a multilevel facility to replace the existing inefficient single storey wings. Two levels of below grade parking containing an additional 60 bays and three levels will be provided, with the Formation Centre reception and meeting rooms on the ground floor and administration and offices on the upper levels. The facility has been planned so that the new centres floor levels are carefully intergrated with the floor levels of the existing building.
