Randwick Barracks - AWD and LHD Ship Facilities Project

Randwick Barracks

Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) Ship Sustainment Facilities Project

The proposed AWD Training Centre aims to provide ship class specific training on both the ship’s combat systems and the platform systems. This training will build upon category training conducted at other RAN training establishments. The proposed Training Centre will be located at Randwick Barracks and will provide three types of training spaces: computer learning classrooms of varying sizes; specialist teaching spaces using part task training simulators and emulators; and equipment based training areas requiring specialist power and mechanical plant. The proposed Training Centre will also include instructor office spaces, resource rooms and meeting rooms; general amenity areas for a library, break out, kitchenettes, and ablutions; a theatre to enable briefings for larger numbers of staff and trainees; office areas for staff to manage the training centre and its systems; and ancillary spaces for server rooms, a reception area and building services.

The proposed AWD Training Centre at Randwick Barracks is a new two-storey purpose built building of approximately 5,800 square metres constructed on a ‘brown field’ site adjacent to the proposed LHD Training Centre. An existing dilapidated warehouse, Building 301, will be demolished as part of these works. A new carpark adjacent to the proposed AWD Training Centre and combined with the proposed LHD Training Centre carpark is also proposed to be provided.
