Project Details

Alder Constructions were engaged to design and construct a brand new trade training centre in Springfield, in the high growth western corridor of Brisbane.

The Trade Training Centre is designed to teach students in the trades of automotive, building and construction, and engineering / metalwork. The facilities and the equipment provided to the students are second to none, providing the students the best opportunity to combine their theoretical subjects and practical learning.

The finished building was completed on time and on budget and far exceeded the expectations of the client. The equipment and items within the facility are some of the best available and allow the students to maximise their learning opportunities.

The facility has been and will continue to be used in the future as a blueprint for other similar facilities by the Queensland Government.
