Pimlico TAFE Redevelopment
Wilson Architects has been selected to design Townsville’s Pimlico TAFE Queensland campus redevelopment.
The $26M project is set to revitalise the heart of the campus, and includes the construction of the first new building in more than 40 years.
Wilson Architects Director Hamilton Wilson says the project will breathe new life into the Pimlico campus.
“We’re excited to collaborate with TAFE on this fantastic project,” Wilson says.
“The redevelopment will create a vibrant, engaging and inclusive learning and working environment that will only attract more and more students.
“This project provides the perfect opportunity for Pimlico TAFE to re-establish its presence in education.”
The concept was to create a sense of activity and engagement, which was previously lacking at Pimlico. The design includes a learning hub and promotes collaboration amongst students.
Wilson Architects has maximised TAFE’s exposure to the surrounding community by positioning the key building close to the street. The design allows the passing public to connect with courses such as hairdressing, beauty and hospitality, while raising the visibility and profile of TAFE at Pimlico.
Minister for Training and Skills Development Shannon Fentiman recently announced the project, which is funded through the Queensland Government’s Advancing Our Training Infrastructure program.
The new building works are due for completion mid-2019.
