A state of the art specialist education facility for New South Wale's first technology focussed
TAFE campus.

In June 2018, the Premier and Member for Ryde unveiled plans for the Meadowbank Education Precinct, comprising of new education facilities including a new primary school, high school and revitalised Meadowbank TAFE.

Gray Puksand have been engaged as Head Design Consultant to deliver state-of-the art specialist education and training facilities at TAFE Meadowbank. This will be in the form of a Construction and Building Trades Facility (Multi-Trades Hub), Information and Communications Technology / Cyber Security Facility (Digital Technology Hub) and upgrades to campus access, look and feel through enhancements of the campus spine, entrance landscaping and site infrastructure.

Today’s education is increasingly about active engagement in co-operative tasks that foster learning as a social process. It is also about appealing to the interests and motivations of individuals, while offering them suitable levels of challenge and the satisfaction of personalised achievement. Such considerations are particularly relevant in the TAFE NSW environment, where students will interact with the ‘interconnected training network’ in diverse ways over varied timeframes.

Upon completion, the precinct will cater for students from as early as Kindergarten, through to Year 12 and into vocational or tertiary education pathways.

In this changing educational landscape, it is important to view new learning spaces not as backdrops to teaching and learning, but as dynamic settings that can afford a variety of learning opportunities and encourage the deep engagement of students in a range of meaningful and valuable activities – both formal and informal. The new Hub will provide a venue for learning that points to the future of skills training in the building and construction industry. The fabric of the built form will both passively and actively contribute to the teaching and learning experience.

The architecture will expose the opportunities housed within and be an invitation to explore new skills and knowledge. The building will demonstrate multidisciplinary collaboration, and enable teaching and learning skills training and digital technologies.

The Hub will connect and create great social spaces, both inside and across the adjacent landscaped spaces. A variety of student, educator and industry spaces will be devoted to social interactions, food and beverage offers and incidental workspace environments. These spaces will be intimately connected to the campus heart / campus green, through a holistic approach to the campus master plan and campus pedestrian walk.
