Architect selected to design $60.5M TAFE campuses

Tasmania has recorded the highest number of monthly dwelling approvals in a decade, with 369 being reported, which is expected to continue according to the state government.

TAFE Gippsland has appointed an architect to design the major redevelopment of its Morwell and Port of Sale campuses.

GHD Woodhead Architecture will provide designs for the redevelopment to provide revitalised training facilities at the two sites.

The Victorian Government provided $35.5 million for the Morwell campus redevelopment and $25 million to build the new Port of Sale campus.

An upgraded Morwell campus will contain a Future Skills Training Centre and a Technical Training Centre of Excellence to provide further learning pathways.

TAFE Gippsland will run community consultations to determine which courses it will offer at each of the campuses.

TAFE Gippsland CEO, Grant Radford, said the move is an exciting step forward for TAFE Gippsland.

“Our community and stakeholder consultations over the coming weeks will play an integral role in identifying the appropriate mix of courses to inform the architectural designs of the new facilities in Morwell and Sale,” he said.

The investment is part of the Victorian 2018/19 Budget.

“This redevelopment of TAFE Gippsland is another great example of the work we’re doing to deliver training solutions to meet the needs of students and industry as they adapt in a changing economy,” Victorian Training and Skills and Higher Education Minister, Gayle Tierney said.
