The Shed complex itself comprises of:

  • A 560 sq/m workshop 
  • Two training rooms (62 sq/m upstairs and 15 sq/m downstairs)
  • Office space and crib rooms
  • First Aid Room
  • Self-contained accommodation within the footprint of the workshop

  • 4 x Self-contained accommodation units

Since commencing operations, the range of equipment, training, personal development employment opportunities have continually evolved. The following images document the changing landscape within the Shed Complex and just a small sample of the activities undertaken from this facility.
