Frankston Redevelopment Project Stage 2

On Friday 22 April we broke ground on Stage 2 of the Frankston Redevelopment Project. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, The Minister for Training and Skills, and the State Member for Frankston were joined by Stephen Varty, Stephen Marks and local officials in a ceremonial Sod Turn to mark the occasion. Read the media release for more details of the event 

The project will introduce new learning spaces dedicated to Community Services, VCE/VCAL and Foundation College courses, along with bespoke spaces for Art and Design. The precinct will also bring together a range of student support services into a Student Hub, along with gallery space and onsite food and retail outlets.

The project will deliver a multi-level education facility spanning 9600 square metres at a cost of $67.6 million. The facility will complement with Stage 1, replacing the two oldest buildings on the Fletcher Road campus.

Architect's vision for Frankston Stage 2

It is expected the entire project will generate an estimated 132 jobs, including employment for 25 apprentices during construction and at least 30 new teaching positions over the next decade. Work on Stage 2 is expected to complete in mid 2023, welcoming new students to the building in late 2023.

Frankston Redevelopment Project Stage 1

The $85 million Frankston Learning and Innovation Precinct opened to students in July 2019. The Precinct is the result of a three-year project to create digitally transformed classrooms and study spaces and is a major investment in the future of Chisholm, Frankston and Melbourne’s southeast region.

The fully equipped, state-of-the-art health wards, workshops, laboratories and collaboration spaces encourage new ways of learning, teaching and thinking, new connections, and new ways to immerse students in their future journey.

The four levels of Building A are home to course delivery in nursing, allied health, early childhood education and, hair and beauty. Level 3 hosts four replica hospital wards, each with six patient beds creating a true-to-life simulated environment. Thirteen specialised Laerdal simulation manikins can be programmed to respond to treatment and medication, explain their symptoms and use AI technology to engage in a real-time conversation.

Building B is a two-level collaborative training space designed to reflect a real-world trade site. Purpose-built and flexible, the integrated design combines student learning in plumbing, construction, electrical, and electrotechnology.

The new Library and Learning Centre is a dynamic, open-plan student research and meeting space with access to research support, digital libraries and access to online study coaching.
