Morgan Sindall delivers £8.2 million sports, business and arts block at Canterbury College!
Posted on: 21/01/2016

Morgan Sindall has constructed a brand new sports hall, business centre and art block for Canterbury College’s campus.

The project involved the construction of a sports centre and business block, in addition to a separate arts block which represents the final phase of development at Canterbury College City Centre campus. The sports hall accommodates many sports, including badminton, basketball, netball, and cricket, and is located close to the campus entrance. It also comprises a fully equipped gymnasium, fitness rooms, changing facilities and teaching space. The business centre provides exceptional facilities for students and the local business community and includes a business lounge, conferencing space and training rooms with the latest generation of audio visual equipment. The arts block comprises large sculpture and ceramics workshops for all students with several storage rooms, including a drying room, and a plaster and clay store.

The efficient 65-week build programme was developed with innovation and is set to achieve a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of Excellent. Morgan Sindall also delivered hard and soft external landscaping which was designed and implemented with the aid of specialists.

As part of Morgan Sindall’s skills investment programme, 18 work placements, six apprenticeships and six full-time contracts were offered to people from the local community. In addition, Higher and Further Education Building studies lessons at the college were supported by the Morgan Sindall project manager and site manager. Students from the college’s bricklaying department also helped construct a section of the project’s boundary wall.

The Capital Projects Manager at Canterbury College, said: “The superb facilities for the staff, students and business community are to the highest standards, and complete the campus redevelopment programme which started in 2004. The college team has worked closely with Morgan Sindall in all aspects of the project from initial design through to commissioning. It has been an excellent team effort throughout and we are all proud to have delivered such special facilities.”
