Remodel and extension of former 1980's secondary school sited between two lakes. Includes large construction workshop, specialist testing and ICT facilities together with general teaching and open plan learning environments. The construction workshop forms the focal point of the facility.
Built from pre-cast concrete and standing seam metal cladding with a large translucent screen onto the adjacent lake, it will be sharp and modern against the existing building and provide insights into the construction methodology through the creative use of exposed structure and services and translucent materials.
The UTC will offer young people who want a career in construction the opportunity to fast-track into the industry; through early specialisation and strong links with industry and FE + HE institutions.
