Our client Eastleigh College has been ranked the top further education college in Hampshire and 10th nationally for student achievement. The figures come from the government’s national rankings which are released annually and look at numbers attending and the percentage of the learners who go on to achieve their qualification. This is a great achievement and reflects the college’s commitment to supporting its students and creating an exceptional learning environment.
ArchitecturePLB worked with the college to create two new facilities, a Creative Skills Centre and Advanced Technology Centre which formed part of a wider £12m investment at the college. When appointed we were able to combine our education, residential, and masterplanning expertise to help the college unlock the potential of their estate, rationalise their campus, and make new capital projects a reality. In 2018 the development was recognised at the Education Estates Awards The project won the ‘Innovation in Delivering Value’ Category and was awarded Highly Commended for Pupil/Student Experience.
