The brief issued by the College is to relocate facilities from their Moss Lane Technology Centre to Talbot Road, while maintaining the function of the college. The new facility will combine the gas plumbing and electrical workshops of both the campuses and relocate the motor vehicle and engineering workshops. New science and electronics labs are added to the fist floor.
The existing building’s external form remains largely untouched with the new building ‘plugging in’ along the side. The new build element provides a higher head room for vehicle maintenance and a volumetric space for engineering lit by a large picture window. The extension provides a simple cost effective space for the college in keeping with the final function of the space.
