The Schools TAFE Alliance for Regional Training (START) Trade Training Centre (TTC) project is a new training facility with industry standard equipment to accommodate vocational training activities on behalf of a cluster of 13 schools in the Frankston area. It is designed to provide flexibility to accommodate changing skill requirements.
Our philosophy was to establish and reinforce the need and desire to unify education and work. Workshop areas were positioned to generate curiosity and interest amongst the youth users of the nearby skate park. The form of the START building aims to express the spirit of its use. A precise metallic form resting on slender and expressive structure is also firmly connected to the solid base of the workshop environment.
