ACA – Education Design New Build Extension
ACA has developed the education design for a new Institute of Technology (IOT) on behalf of , (ERC) in Beverley. Also, ACA’s design team will provide an integrated service including architecture, interior, landscape design and principal designer services.
In fact, the new institute will form part of a regional Institute called the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology. This will be one of only 12 across the country! Furthermore, the Yorkshire and Humber IOT is a government initiative aiming to close the skills gap in key STEM areas. Therefore, the outcome will be a supply of highly skilled, technical candidates for employers. So, the new IOT department at ERC will specialise in delivering higher technical education. Hence the focus will be on: science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects.
Primarily, the brief is to develop the design of a single storey extension to ERC’s Flemingate campus in Beverley. Furthermore the design needs to seamlessly integrate with the existing building and allow for future-proofing as popularity increases. The LEP secured £0.5 million from the Government’s Local Growth Fund to part fund the project.
So, the proposed extension comprises:
- CAD Suites
- A Science Lab
- A Higher Education Study Zone
- A Workshop
The symbolic ground breaking ceremony took place at the college on 19 October 2020. Recently, work began on site in December 2020.
