The Precinct

The Construction Training Centre is located on a 12 hectare site in the Brisbane suburb of Salisbury.  We have a range of purpose built construction training facilities available for lease and also short term hire.  We have a building stock of 11 where a range of training activities take place. The site is structured around a busy central precinct, creating a campus-style hub of activity.

The Buildings

Buildings 1, 2, 3, 4:  These large segregated, but inter-connected, re-furbished open-plan workshops house a mixture of leasing tenants and short-term hire space and equipment. They are 9-14 metre high structures with 7 high roll steel shutters. The Hot Leasing facility, brand new in 2014 is located in Building 3 and 4, and also attached to these buildings is a single story office area with classrooms and amenities.

Building 6:  High bay (10 metre) web steel portal frame workshop area with attached single story office accommodation. Buildings 7, 8:  High bay, timber frame and truss workshop with high roll steel shutter. Two level office accommodation and connected amenities. Building 9:  Pre-fabricated single level office accommodation. Building 10:  Single level workshop with associated office / teaching area. Ian Barclay Building:  This the main building in the centre of the precinct; an architecturally designed 3 level office block housing a conference facility and café built in 2001. Other:  There are a number of smaller training buildings and demountables across the site. The precinct is bounded by Orrcon Steel workshops to the rear of the property, by Rocky Water Holes Creek to the North and the former Nyanda State High School to the South.

Master Plan

The Precinct has a Master Plan that was developed with the assistance of renowned designers and town planners GHD. This broadly maps out the potential future development of the Centre to maintain its status as an important hub for building and construction training. The Master Plan has already achieved design approval through the Community Infrastructure Designation (CID) process meaning that the timeline for building from agreement with a potential tenant is a very short one. All Master Plans are by nature illustrative with iterations made during the design process.

However there are a number of principles that hold good and this is true of our Master Plan. These principles include:

  • Building to high sustainability standards either incorporating Green Star or matching Green Star standards;
  • Incorporating the concept of the Living Laboratory where the buildings will in themselves act as a training and education tool allowing students to interact with them to download data and understand new technology;
  • Focussing the southern section of the Precinct into more office-oriented training space
  • Focussing the central Precinct into more workshop space with latest thinking in terms of training and education space incorporated into the design;
  • Working closely with the intended tenant/s to design a space that meets their needs and incorporates the latest teaching and learning technology.

CTC has its own architect, environmental consultant and other design and engineering staff in place who are able to provide a design and build solution to exceed tenant expectations both in terms of design and timelines. CTC is happy to discuss solutions with potential tenants. If you are interested please contact Phil Diver, Chief Executive Officer on
