TAFE workshop $2M transformation into creative training space!

Architectural firm Eastman Poletti Sherwood Architects has been appointed to design a major refurbishment project at Central Regional TAFE's Geraldton campus. The $2 million upgrade will see a 50-year-old trades workshop extended and transformed into six learning spaces for creative industries, and will create local jobs during construction.

The ageing workshop, known as I Block, will be refurbished to include three traditional art studios and three classrooms where Geraldton's next generation of artists, fashion designers and media specialists will learn the tools of their trade. Modern amenities for students and lecturers will also take shape as part of the transformation of the I Block workshop.

Construction of the new creative industries training facilities, which is anticipated to start in July 2021, will unlock jobs in the Mid West, and when the new spaces are opened, increased student capacity will have positive flow on benefits for local small businesses.
