This £1.93 million project saw the construction of two purpose-built mezzanine areas delivering increased workshop capacity for electrical and plumbing, as well as refurbished spaces for gas and painting and decorating training.
The development also provides two new additional classroom spaces, equipped with cutting-edge hybrid learning technology to give access to high-quality interactive teaching to students who are unable to attend the sessions in person.
The areas are equipped with industry-standard tools and equipment so that students will gain experience of using the same kit as they would in the workplace.
They also benefit from the build offering work experience and apprenticeship opportunities, giving them the chance to work on a large-scale construction project and be involved in building their own learning facilities in partnership with the Contractor.
The new facilities, developed with funding from the Department of Education’s Post-16 Capacity Fund, opened during the 2022/23 academic year in September and the project is being led by Wolverhampton-based construction company Interclass PLC.
