Plans for a £2.3million state-of-the-art T Level facility have been submitted to Charnwood Borough Council by a local team of specialists for Loughborough College.
The project team – which includes project manager Thornton Firkin, architects Bond Bryan, M&E consultancy Couch Perry Wilkes (CPW) and structural engineer ABA Consulting – has worked collaboratively with Loughborough College to develop a new contemporary and visually appealing two storey building that will include teaching, training, office, and associated space.
The Marketing to Contractors & Housebuilders feature (which is sponsored by South East Construction Expo) in the Sectors section of our Directory provides an overview of the sector, including
details of its various media channels and events, together with access to our downloadable database of those with responsibility for procurement at key firms.
The facility will be located on the college campus, opposite the Radmoor Centre, and has been designed to provide a range of flexible teaching and specialist spaces to meet the needs of the T Level qualifications. The course, equivalent to A Levels, was introduced by the government last year and offers students a mix of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience.
The project received funding of £2.3m to complete the facility and is supported by the Department for Education. The proposed new building will also create a prominent, contemporary ‘gateway’ to the college’s campus on Epinal Way.
T Levels are technical alternatives to A Levels, combining classroom theory, practical learning, and an industry placement of at least 45 days where students will build the knowledge and skills they need in a workplace environment and to meet the needs of employers.
