Rewarding regional redevelopments

August 20, 2020

Funded by the Qld Government’s Advancing our Training Infrastructure program, the Pimlico TAFE project has now received accolades in Townsville overnight, being crowned best Education facility over $10mil for the region.

The project meant a huge deal to local community, with the Pimlico campus now positioned as TAFE’s first specialised contemporary non-trade training centre focusing on hair & beauty, hospitality & nursing.

The new two-storey teaching block was a 4,000 square metre extension to the existing D Block which includes a state-of-the-art hospitality training café and commercial training kitchen; hairdressing and beauty salon; and a simulated nursing ward.

The design of the building also incorporates a modern learning hub to promote collaboration amongst the 900+ students using the facility. In addition to an IT and communications lab, the new facility comprises a dedicated wet lab and creative industries area.

This is all in addition to a modern library & IT service area, as well as offering multiple vibrant and engaging general learning areas and flexible teaching rooms. A stunning addition & a job well done to our team in Townsville!
