We have delivered state-of-the-art facilities for students, teachers, and the community as part of Cirencester College’s overall masterplan.

The challenge

We have worked with Cirencester College over several years on a premises development plan, aiming to make improvements to the site and provide cutting-edge, flexible learning spaces. The major projects we have delivered in recent years include the Digital Skills Building, T Levels Building and Art Block remodelling.

Our approach

Across both the Digital Skills and T Levels Buildings we have implemented innovative ideas, based around design, flexibility, ease of construction and providing best value to the client. The use of brick slips ensured that the external envelope of the Digital Skills Centre was complete ahead of time, allowing work internally to progress ahead of schedule.

As well as designing the exterior, we also carried out extensive work on the interior to create a light, comfortable and social space.

The results

The Digital Skills Building is an exemplary teaching block based around flexibility, collaboration, and technology. We delivered the building on a live campus, working closely with E G Carter to minimise disruption.

The T Level building provides teaching facilities for a range of subjects, including engineering, health, and construction. T Levels provide opportunities for students who wish to pursue technical careers. By offering a range of subjects and ways of learning, the college is becoming a more innovative and inclusive campus.

Our landscape architecture team has designed a number of external spaces, including seating outside the Digital Skills Building and a proposed new courtyard.

The art block remodel included work to the internal walls to create an open space fostering creativity. A brand new lift and external staircase were added during the remodel, which has given the building a new personality and enhanced the exterior.
