The history of SSE's Building J

Find out more

SSE's Building J started life as Sydney’s Technical Bootmaking School in 1940. In 2017, life returned to Building J when SSE took over the lease of the building, continuing the legacy of teaching innovation, business growth, creativity, and craft.

Parquetry Hall’s floor is lined with repurposed hardwood timber blocks which lined George Street in Sydney’s CBD in the early 1900s.
