"A key part of the build process was being able to combine an attractive learning environment with one that can withstand heavy footfall, all within tight timescales.

“We have worked hard to embed the new design into the community and reduce the visual impact of this large building. We were thrilled when the project won 'Project of the Year' and also the 'Integration & Collaborative Working' Award at the prestigious Constructing Excellence Awards 2015, This project was a unique opportunity to realise both strategic and end user aspirations providing a community based facility for lifelong learning, and is a testament to everyone's hard work."
