The building of over 2,000 sq metres, which is located on one of the major gateways into the city, now boasts six maths classrooms, a computer science suite and 12 purpose built science labs covering biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, geology and forensic science.

The centre also houses a student cafe, learning hub, interview rooms and a staff room.
