Project: Rochdale Sixth Form College, Rochdale

Client: Rochdale SFC

Rochdale is the first Sixth Form College to be opened in the UK since 2004, having opened its doors to students aged 16-18 in September 2010. We have recently been involved in the ground floor extension and alteration to the College in the Greater Manchester, Rochdale area. The college’s first set of academic results were in the top 5% of all sixth form institutions in the UK in value added terms and continues to make headlines for its academic performance.

Swindon UTC

Project: Swindon UTC

Media City UK (Salford UTC)

Project: Media City UK (Salford UTC)

Client: Mott MacDonald

This £10.4m University Technical College is based in a 6,200sqm building in Salford. It provides 14-19 year olds with an outstanding education in the core curriculum combined with the right skills to access careers in the digital, media and creative industries.


Energy Coast UTC (Cumbria UTC)

Project: Energy Coast UTC (Cumbria UTC)

Client: Mott MacDonald

The new £6.8m Energy Coast UTC was developed on a green field site in West Cumbria. The College was keen to have a solution that provided a building with low running costs but did not want to follow the BREEAM process. Our Building Clerk of Works was able to use his construction knowledge to advise on the correct materials and inspect special innovations to help the UTC achieve the low energy status required. Due to the marine environment, all materials used for the envelope were non-ferrous.
