Schools and Education

As the demand for sporting venues increases, it becomes very important for councils to look at all available opportunities for sporting outcomes for their residents.  This may include projects at public schools that can provide a joint usage opportunity for their communities outside of school hours.

The education department established the Building Quality Standards Handbook ( BQSH) to create base line compliancy for sporting facilities at schools. It is important to recognise that these are minimum standards. 

As per the Netball Victoria Facilities Manual, there are certain infrastructure and access requirement necessary for venues that service certain pathway level competitions as compared to training venues.  

In all cases, it is necessary to have access to suitable toilets and amenities, but there may also be other infrastructure requirements.   

The BQSH should always be used in conjunction with the NV Facilities Manual and the NA Policy and Technical Manual.

“The Building Quality Standards Handbook sets the minimum quality criteria for all Department of Education and Training (DET) capital projects, including new construction, refurbishment and maintenance works. Its purpose is to assist architects and designers to create high-quality designs for school facilities across Victoria.” (BQSH May 2019)
