Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct

Our Project Leaders team are pleased to be providing project management services on the Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct with School Infrastructure NSW and TAFE NSW.

The Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct will reimagine the way we learn and connect. The project involves relocating Meadowbank Public School and Marsden High School to new facilities at the Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct, following the construction of new facilities. The schools at the Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct will cater for 1000 primary school students, 1500 secondary school students and a further 120 Intensive English Centre students. The new school facilities will house the separate primary school and high school in multilevel, multipurpose buildings connected with play spaces and landscaped areas.

TAFE NSW Meadowbank will be transformed into a technology-focussed campus, which will include a new Multi-Trades Hub and the new Institute of Applied Technology for Digital Technology. The new TAFE NSW facilities will provide unique industry innovation and collaboration spaces which aim to equip the next generation of workers with advanced cross-disciplinary and digital skills that support the state’s emerging labour market needs.

The team is extremely excited to partner with School Infrastructure NSW and TAFE NSW to deliver this innovative educational learning hub.
