Australian contractor Broad Construction has announced plans to build a cutting-edge Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Centre at the Technical and Further Education Queensland (TAFE) campus in Brisbane. This state-of-the-art facility will be a collaboration between TAFE and the federal government’s Department of Youth Justice, Employment, Small Business, and Training.
The Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Centre, to be located at TAFE’s Eagle Farm campus, will span two floors and feature classrooms, seminar rooms, laboratories, workshops, and breakout areas. The center aims to provide students with comprehensive training in robotics, advanced manufacturing, renewable technologies, process instrumentation, and telecoms.
Rather than relying on traditional construction methods, Broad Construction is committed to sustainable building practices for this project. With a target of achieving a five-star Green Building rating, the company aims to minimize the environmental impact of the facility.
Piling works for the Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Centre have already begun, with completion expected by the third quarter of 2024. Broad Construction, known for its expertise in working on occupied, high-density environments, is dedicated to delivering the center on time, within budget, and to the highest quality standards.
Broad Construction is a subsidiary of Cimic, a leading global contractor owned by Spanish contractor ACS. The project represents a significant step forward in Queensland’s commitment to fostering innovation in the field of advanced manufacturing and robotics.
