Architectural Services - City Collective has recently been engaged to undertake the detailed design and construction documentation to progress the Trentham Sportsground Pavilion Redevelopment Project. The final phase of design works will commence in mid-March and are anticipated to be completed by June 2021.

During this phase of the project consultation with the project’s key stakeholders will continue to ensure that the finer details of the design meet the needs of the pavilion users; and as the project progresses, officers will keep our community informed of key project milestones through providing updates on Participate Hepburn and social media.

The timeframe for the completion of the detailed design and construction documentation for the project will ensure if Council’s funding submission is successful; the project will meet SRV’s funding requirement to commence construction of the project within 6 months of formalising the funding agreement.


The redevelopment of the Trentham Sportsground Pavilion will be a welcoming and inclusive community facility that through contemporary universal access, gender equity and family-friendly design, will improve sports club use and broader multi-purpose community meeting space needs.

The sportsground supports the function of junior and senior, male and female football, cricket and netball, as well as providing a venue for large community and private events. The project will improve the internal lay-out of the pavilion to better accommodate club operations, match day experience and hiring of the pavilion for broader community activities and events. Importantly it will also provide gender equitable changerooms.

In developing the concept schematic design Council worked with a design architect and users of the sportsground. The schematic design has the endorsement of user groups, Council and potential Victorian State Government funding partners. The design complies with AFL Victoria and Cricket Victoria facility guidelines for a local club level facility. Construction of project will be subject to securing external State or Federal Government funding in addition to Council’s contribution.
