The Brookman Building was the first purpose-built home to the South Australian school of mines and industries in 1991. To reduce costs at the time, the building was built in red brick with a dressing of limestone.
The freestone (limestone) up to plinth level and copings of the entrance steps was supplied by Torode’s quarry on the River Murray, while the remaining freestone was from Laycock’s quarry at Murray Bridge.
