T Level building, Cirencester College
Our second project for Cirencester College. A new accessible building to accommodate the needs of students undertaking T levels. Learning in these subjects requires a blend of workshop, group, auditorium seating and traditional classroom space. Teaching spaces are large and more varied, including breakout areas, specialist equipment, semi-supervised study spaces and venues for presentations, employer events and collaborative working. The building is fully accessible. The structure is a steel frame with composite metal deck and concrete floor slabs. This design maximises flexibility, as it facilitates a relatively large column grid, is light weight thus reducing foundation loads and steel can be recycled at the end of life. A blue roof was specified for attenuation to avoid any digging of attenuation tanks.
