Wyndham Tech School Building Design
Victoria University is hosting the Wyndham Tech School at its Werribee Campus. Anticipated to open in mid 2018, it will be housed in a newly constructed, innovative building.
The Architects, Gray Puksand, have delivered a broad range of purposeful, contemporary learning settings, including design studios, digital and physical prototyping labs, simulation and collaboration hubs, which will be fitted out with state-of-the-art technology to give secondary school students advanced education and training in science, technology, engineering and maths.
This has been achieved through a co-design process that has engaged local educators, students and business networks in the design development.
The Wyndham Tech School is a collaboration between schools partners, local government, business and training organisations, industry and community, including:
- Victoria Polytechnic;
- Wyndham City Council;
