Construction works have begun on the $1.7 million Latrobe Synthetic Sports Field Pavilion at Federation University, Churchill.
Latrobe City mayor, Councillor Darrell White welcomed the works, saying this long-awaited project would be a fantastic addition to the region’s sporting infrastructure.
"Latrobe City has been building on its reputation as the go-to venue for regional sporting events in the state and this much-needed pavilion ensures a prosperous future for hockey in Latrobe City," Cr White said.
"Works have started, with the site compound established and civil works underway to prepare the building’s foundations.
"The two-storey pavilion will include change facilities, first aid room, universal accessible amenities, umpire change rooms, office and store rooms, multi-purpose meeting space, commercial kitchen and canteen, and spectator viewing area.
"This project would not have been possible without the fantastic support of the State Government, Federation University, the Federal Government and the Latrobe Valley Hockey Association – it is a true community-led collaborative project and I’d like to thank all of the partners for their commitment to the development of this facility."
The project is jointly funded by Latrobe City Council $415,000, State Government $650,000, Federation University $415,000, Federal Government $200,000 and Latrobe Valley Hockey Association $20,000.
The pavilion is expected to be completed in August 2018.
