This £11m fast-track project took 18 months from start of design to completion on site in July 2016. A new build 3 storey cross laminated timber structure houses classrooms, lab, lecture theatre and sportshall. The project re-uses precast concrete portal frames which were re-clad to provide large engineering workshops. Ground improvement techniques were employed as part of the foundation solution for the new lightweight timber structure.
