Extent Heritage (formerly Futurepast Heritage Consulting Pty Ltd) were commissioned by Australian Technology Park Innovations to prepare a Statement of Heritage Impact for solar panel installation works at the National Innovation Centre. The site is historically significant to the NSW Railways at Eveleigh as the New Locomotive Workshops built in 1907 for locomotive construction and repair.
The year 1907 was distinguished by the decision of the Commissioners for Railways to begin the manufacture of new locomotives for NSW Railways at Eveleigh. The New Locomotive Workshops, now known as the National Innovation Centre, was constructed for this purpose and is situated adjacent to the original Locomotive Workshops. The New Locomotive Workshops continued to be used for the manufacture of new locomotives until 1925 when it was converted to a repairs workshop. In the mid-1990s, the building was adapted for use as the National Innovation Centre.
