TAFE NSW Kingswood of Applied Technology Construction

The Haron Robson team was involved in the new TAFE NSW Kingswood Institute of Applied Technology project, a significant educational development in Napean. This $85 million project, set to open its doors in 2024, will serve as a model for supporting the pipeline of major infrastructure projects, civil construction works, and residential developments, as well as future projects that will service Western Sydney's rapidly growing population.

Our task, in close collaboration with Gray Puksand Architects, was to improve the learning environment through innovative lighting solutions. Our services included developing initial design concepts, ensuring code compliance, and developing detailed lighting plans to enhance the 8,500 sqm educational space.

The project's core objectives guided our approach: fostering social interaction and promoting interdisciplinary connections. This was accomplished by designing versatile lighting arrangements that adapted to the institute's diverse educational needs, ranging from practical workshops to theoretical study areas.

The building features an atrium, glass-enclosed workshops, and seminar rooms, emphasising transparency and openness to create a functional yet visually inspiring atmosphere in today’s modern educational settings, aligning with the Institute’s goal of training up to 700 trades students annually and accommodating a larger student body in the future.
