We are delighted to be assisting Seddon Construction in closing off final surveys and testing at Stockport College, which includes post construction BREEAM certification.
The College, a feature of the town for over 130 years, has announced the completion of its redevelopment project which will provide a modern and sustainable learning environment for thousands of students of all ages.
Construction has delivered 95,900 sq ft of space across three new, sustainably designed buildings as well as a remodelled landscape. The new estate will complement existing facilities which include industry standard environments for the construction trades, engineering, and motor vehicle industries.
Officially opened by Mayor of Stockport David Wilson, the college’s new front of house facility, the Lyme Building, features a main reception, state-of-the-art hair, beauty and nail salons, science labs, a business centre, Costa Coffee lounge and Student Services hub.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority, in conjunction with the Greater Manchester Business Board have supported the College’s vision for redevelopment and contributed a £16m grant towards the redevelopment costs through the Local Growth Fund programme, which was further supplemented by funding from the Department for Education as well as the college itself.
As well as the new Lyme building, the project also provided a new Arts & Creative Media Centre, a refurbished Higher Education centre, and a new internal courtyard which has been designed to provide students with a safe and friendly space.
Project3 Architects designed the project, which was delivered in two phases with a total project value of £23m.
