Ashmore TAFE trades facility ready for students after grand opening

ADCO has completed the new, state-of-the-art Trades Training Centre for TAFE Queensland’s Ashmore campus, Brisbane.

Last week, Meaghan Scanlon MP officially opened the complex on behalf of QLD Minister Di Farmer. Education Minister Grace Grace MP was also in attendance alongside dignitaries from the state government and TAFE Queensland.

A number of our staff working on the project once trained in the old facilities, including ADCO Project Manager Justin Allen, and Sarah Bowdler who is one of our first female apprentices and will now undertake her studies and training inside the newly completed facility.

The $10.5 million facility features practical learning zones for students undertaking building and construction courses from Certificate I to Diploma level. Features include an elevated working-at-heights training area, open-plan classrooms, viewing platforms, interactive technology and a new student hub with kitchen amenities and study areas.

ADCO is proud to have delivered this important project for our Client, which will enrich the education experience for construction trainees for many years to come.
