Stop 15 Portside Building

Stop 15 The Portside building

Constructed in 1946, the former Burnie Technical School was one of a number of outstanding designs by the main architect from Tasmania’s Public Works Dept., Sydney Blythe. During construction, human remains were disturbed and bones removed, and it was later realized that it was on the site of one of Burnie’s original graveyards. In 1959, a motor mechanic workshop was erected by Stubbs Construction linking the adjacent saw-tooth roof . The building was saved from demolition for a shopping complex in 2008 and is now a listed on the Tasmanian heritage register. Building at 1-3 Spring St.
