Construction has broken ground on TAFE NSW Kingswood’s new Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) for Construction, worth $80 million.
The facility is on track to open in early 2023 after ADCO Constructions was awarded the construction contract.
Jobs, Investment, Tourism, and Western Sydney Minister Stuart Ayres and Skills and Tertiary Education Minister Geoff Lee turned the first sod at the new signature training facility.
According to Ayres, the new IAT for Construction will revolutionise education and training in Western Sydney.
According to Lee, the IAT will deliver specialized training to 700 new trades students every year.
The NSW Premier, Dominic Perrottet announced that a new facility will be built to train the workforce of tomorrow. The building is designed with the next generation of trades workers in mind and has state-of-the-art technology throughout so they can learn about how our cities work while being trained for these jobs.
John Basilisco, NSW State Manager for ADCO said that they were thrilled to be selected as the builder of choice in this project.
