Manawatu’s new $10m state-of-the-art trades building will be open as planned on 12 March for UCOL trades students.
Local building company McMillan and Lockwood have pulled out all the stops to make sure students enrolled in UCOL’s Trades programmes this year start their studies in their new facilities in Princess Street. The Trades building will be open for business on 12 March, with students spending their first day learning about and exploring their new environment.
Members of the public and regional industry representatives will also be invited to view the new facilities – the region’s largest trades training centre – later in March.
The new building covers 5,315 square metres, with shared space and enough room for students to build several houses. It contains the very latest industry-fit equipment and allows UCOL teaching staff to combine traditional skills, hands-on project-based learning with new teaching technology, including phones, I-Pads, YouTube and video.
