St Joseph's College Trade Training Centre - Newtown, Geelong
Project Value - $2.6m
Client - St Joseph's College
Architect - McGlashan Everist
A place to learn valuable new skills
The recently completed Trade Training Centre dramatically expands the studentsí opportunity to learn woodwork, metalwork and nursing skills. The light filled space has a large open plan workshop, a nurse training centre, a classroom, flexible training area and north facing landscaped outdoor area.
The project involved the renewal of the adjacent Joseph Centre, this included installation of new wood working machinery and dust extraction system.
The tight site threw up several challenges, including the need to open the site gates at 3:00pm every school day to allow twenty buses safe passage to take the children home.
The build was the most recent of many projects completed for the school with McGlashan Everist.
