£4m for both phases
This 300 year old Sixth Form College is located within the Egham Conservation Area and on the edge of the Metropolitan Green Belt. It comprised buildings ranging from Grade II listed almshouses dating back to the 1820s through to 1960-1980s blocks, many of which were inadequate from both an Equality Act and a curriculum standpoint.
AD worked closely with the College and local planning authority to agree a solution for a new teaching block adjacent to the almshouses and a staff/student block which straddles the green belt boundary.
The buildings were successfully completed with the College remaining in occupation throughout, and AD has subsequently undertaken a feasibility study for a £15m second phase.
The second phase of work undertaken was to build a new two storey 8 classroom teaching block and to undertake internal refurbishment to form a new drama studio and refurbish existing WC areas. The work was undertaken on a very short programme with the College in occupation.
Design work commenced in March, the contractor was on site in the summer, refurbishment work was complete by in time for the new academic year and the new building by the start of the Spring Term.
