We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Rivermount College on their next stage of works: a state-of-the-art Hospitality Training Centre.
Named after the College’s Founding Patron, the Neville Bonner Building will provide Hospitality Training, including commercial food prep, cooking, and plating areas, walk-in cold room, freezer, and pantry, commercial dishwashing equipment, and a heated pass connecting to a front-of-house service training area with hospitality service, point of sale, and barista training.
The precinct also provides indoor and outdoor, alfresco-style teaching, learning, and dining areas which will accommodate “real world” learning opportunities such as school events, open days, and the like.
Aspects of the design were driven by Novum’s initial exploration of master planning and architectural considerations at Rivermount College which highlighted opportunities to strengthen physical and visual connections across the campus and provide more useable, active, and social external places.
Inspired by Rivermount’s existing architectural features, and their strong connection with Aboriginal and Torres Straight communities, the curved parapet design will feature indigenous art by an indigenous artist and will pay tribute to the life and legacy of the late Dr Neville Bonner AO.
