Porsche & Volkswagen Training Facilities
- Value: $9.5 million
- Client: Essendon Fields
- Architect: Era Architects
- Date: 2021
The Porsche & Volkswagen Training Facilities project is the seventh project Maben Group has completed at Essendon Fields.
The project involved the construction of two separate state-of-the-art-training facilities for Porsche Cars Australia and Volkswagen Group Australia.
The 837 square metre Porsche Facility is now the headquarters for Porsche Cars Australia’s training programs, for both service technicians and sales representatives from Porsche Centres around Australia.
The 2500 square metre VW site will house the brand’s regional office and features a mezzanine floor where Volkswagen Financial Services, VW Commercial Vehicles, Skoda and Audi facilitate work.
Both training facilities are equipped with offices, classrooms and practice / practical training rooms complete with hoist equipment.
Construction commenced in February 2020, with a fast-paced construction programme targeting a Porsche handover that was achieved in late October 2020 and late January 2021 for Volkswagen.
