Architects from Kununurra and Perth have been appointed to design a new $6 million health and hospitality training centre at the Kununurra campus of North Regional TAFE, as part of the $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan.
Mark Phillips Architect of Kununurra and Saleeba Adams Architects of Perth will jointly design the facilities used to deliver training in aged and disability care, and hospitality and tourism.
The new centre includes a simulated training space divided into an in-home care suite and a small nursing ward. This will enable the TAFE facility to deliver National Disability Insurance Scheme training in Kununurra, to meet demand for aged and disability care in the region and generating jobs to support the local economy.
A training kitchen, art workshop and gallery for the delivery of hospitality, tourism and cultural activities specific to the region is also included in the design.
Construction is anticipated to start in August 2021.
