Dandenong Regional Education Alliance Model (D.R.E.A.M.) is a new two level Trade Training Centre servicing five high schools in the Dandenong area. Located on Chisholm Institute's Dandenong Campus, D.R.E.A.M. provides training facilities for Building Construction Trades and Hairdressing, and also incorporates a Learning Resource Centre, Technology / Computer Laboratories, and Administration & Staff Areas. The centre of the building is dedicated to informal learning areas that spill out into a sheltered courtyard. The upper level of the building is wrapped in a perforated metal screen presenting a striking facade to nearby pedestrian thoroughfare as well as providing necessary sun protection.
