Brimbank CEO Helen Morrissey said the Facility Management of the Year Award (medium category) recognised improvements to Brimbank Leisure Centres in 2019.

“Brimbank Leisure Centres have achieved some incredible results in the past year, despite the very significant challenges present by COVID 19, including more than 30,000 extra visits and gaining an extra 300 members,” Ms Morrissey said.

“We’ve introduced 24 hour gym access at Sunshine Leisure Centre and of course completed the design and planning of the exciting new St Albans Health and Wellbeing Hub, which will replace the old St Albans Leisure Centre.

“We’ve also improved our environmental footprint at Sunshine Leisure Centre, by ‘thinking outside the box’ and adopting a mix of innovative technologies and simple, yet smart, solutions – such as using up-cycled building materials for the outdoor café, and reducing plastic waste.

“Brimbank has continually invested in solar, cogeneration, rain water harvesting, backwash recovery, automated building management, energy monitoring as well as energy efficient fittings, fixtures and pool plant.                                                     

“We are proud of our vision for a sustainable future for the community and our achievements in this space.

“Thank you to Aquatics and Recreation Victoria – we are grateful for being recognized and would also like to congratulate the other nominees for their achievements.”

US basketballer Dennis Rodham announced Brimbank Leisure Centres as the winner of the Facility Management of the Year Award (medium category) in an online video message on Thursday 29 October.
