The spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship at the Ballarat Technology Park (BTP) enables techno-driven businesses to thrive and prosper, in a dynamic and supportive environment. This fast evolving precinct is designed to encourage and support the development of both emerging and existing technology-oriented enterprises.
The Ballarat Technology Park (BTP) will expand to the Ballarat central business district in January 2014. The BTP has refurbished the 'Brewery Building' in Lydiard Street South and created an additional 2500m2 of quality office space in the heart of the City. The University has committed in excess of $2 million to the refurbishment of the 'Brewery Building' and has totally redeveloped the interior of the building said Mal Vallance, Director of the BTP. The focus has been on creating a diverse range of office sizes, meeting, conference facilities as well as break out and networking spaces he said. The State Government has contributed $500,000 towards the redevelopment. The University has received strong interest from a range of small enterprises in relation to leasing space within the building. We will attempt to replicate the success we have had at Mt Helen in terms of supporting 'start up' and small enterprises to grow and expand in a supportive business environment Mr Vallance said. This development is enormously exciting for the University and part of a wider strategy of building a stronger presence in the Ballarat central business district.
