Health and Sustainability Training Precinct (J Block) Building

This award winning new TAFE campus in Cairns by Total Project Group Architects was recognised by the Australian Institute of Architect’s annual Far North Queensland Awards 2011.

The citation from the jury described the new facility as "The original base building has been substantially modified to achieve full green star compliance as well as creating an upgraded arrival and way finding identity for the campus.

Extensive use of recycled building materials has been implemented with an integrated small environmental swale incorporated into the stormwater site systems. The repositioned facilities offer state of the art training standards and integrate effectively with sustainability and indigenous training programs.”
