Dingley, VIC Kennedy Community Centre

ADCO has secured the Hawthorn Football Club, Kennedy Community Centre development; the club’s new elite training and administration facility in Dingley.

Working with the consultant team to complete the ECI phase, ADCO is now on site completing the design and construction of the new headquarters and community facilities. The site spans 28 hectares and will include an MCG-sized training oval and elite aquatic and gym facilities for the Hawks men’s and women’s teams. The main oval will host home games for Hawthorn’s AFLW team, VFL and community matches.

The Kennedy Community Centre will feature a community pavilion and oval built to ensure gender-equal facilities and public amenities, specifically for community use and engagement.

A flexible education and learning space will enable the delivery of flagship, partnered programs that mentor, lead, educate and inspire.

The facility will also include an indoor stadium for community basketball, netball, volleyball, and wheelchair AFL, a main oval and the Harris Elite Training and Administration Facility, which will cater for all Hawthorn teams equally.

Administrative spaces for community and not-for-profit organisations to share the club’s resources will help create a healthy, inclusive, and cohesive culture through participation.
