Dalwood Community Centre

The redevelopment of the Northern Beaches Health Service (NBHS) Dalwood Community Centre provides the opportunity to consolidate the majority of the Child and Family Health Services onto a single campus. This consolidation will complement the range of services including the existing Spilstead Services and Family Care Centre. The Scheme Design has been produced based on extensive consultation by McConnel Smith and Johnson and the Consultant team to reflect and support key planning and design principles as follows: ease of access; welcoming space for children & families; child & family focussed; appropriate sensory environment; enables best practice care; integration and multidisciplinary collaboration; zonal approach; ease of connection to existing facilities; separation of flows and containment of flows (where applicable); flexibility and adaptability; optimise staff experience; and enable operational efficiencies. The site after completion will support the expansion of Child and Family Health Services into the future.
