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.
