Their Return

  • Facility fully booked for the first 12 months of operation, prior to practical completion.
  • Interest from other industry sectors in using and learning from training simulation facility.
  • Granting of funds from the Federal Government to further develop training programs for the Australian market, bringing total project worth to $14m.
  • Reinforces MBAV brand strategy as a leading peak body and innovator in construction and infrastructure training.
  • Will mark the Australian construction industry amoung global best practice.
