Building 57 was named in recognition of the great assistance rendered to RMIT by the late Director of Technical Education. It houses the School of Engineering.
In late 2009, the “Renewable Energy Training” project began. Staff and students from the School assisted the industry electrical inspectors with the assembly and installation of three large solar panel grids. Completed in April 2010, the space is now a training facility for the electrical apprentice program.
