A new engineering and science focused UTC
architect LSI Architects
service structural and civil engineering
Smith and Wallwork provided civil and structural design for the £8m new UTC on the live regional college campus completed in 2015.
The focus of the new facility is engineering with specialist construction, manufacture and materials labs and workshops. Science labs and electronic labs included optical microscopes and fume cupboards. Such specialist space required a high level of building services and significant time was spent 3d modelling to ensure no clashes occurred between structure and services. The building includes a full catering kitchen and dining facilities for students.
An innovative floor cassette system was used, tested in CUED labs in 2015.
