ArchitecturePLB’s Eastleigh College redevelopment has been shortlisted for two Education Estates Awards, pupil/student experience and innovation in delivering value.
A new Creative Skills Centre and Advanced Technology Centre, form part of a wider £12m investment at the college. Jan Edrich, Chief Executive and Principal at Eastleigh College, is delighted with the new Centres, “It has been amazing to watch the site develop from paper plans to finished buildings. They look and feel exciting and provide an excellent environment in which the students can learn the high level technical skills required for employment in their industry.”
An innovative campus rationalisation approach has allowed the creation of two adaptable high impact teaching facilities within a constrained budget and a short timeframe. Budget has been spent where it counts and a ‘long life, loose fit, low energy’ approach offers long term value for full-time leaners and apprentices.
Winners will be announced on 16 October in Manchester as part of the Education Estates Exhibition and Conference.
