This project involved the transformation of a former industrial site into a new further education campus to house industry focused learning environments; offering students the opportunity to train in facilities that match the best examples available in the workplace.
Weston College sought to achieve accommodation which was 'landmark and inspirational' for their learners and the local community. They wanted to provide high quality learning environment in which individuals could develop their education and skills for employment. The completed buildings had to be fully fit for purpose and efficient for the college to operate. In addition, the accommodation had to be flexible and adaptable as the college was not seeking to substantially expand the overall space available, but through refurbishment and adaptation, to make better and more efficient use of their existing assets.
