The £1.6m contract to add additional facilities to the College has now been completed. The new two-story building comprising of workshops for practical skills development, teaching laboratories and offices space for staff and amenities. Whilst the project was slightly delayed in completion due to the National lockdown, construction soon re-commenced once manufacturing and other key suppliers re-started having gone into temporary closure. Feedback from the clients has been very positive and commented ‘Excellent performance and outstanding quality’. Additional contracts for almost £1m were also completed on site included the demolition and alteration of existing bedroom accommodation, formation of new classrooms, workshop and associated office/administration/welfare accommodation and the replacement of existing windows, doors and external render.
