Morgan Sindall awarded college deal

Suffolk County Council has awarded Morgan Sindall a contract to build an £18.5M sixth-form college in Lowestoft.

The four-storey Lowestoft College campus building will consist of specialist teaching facilities containing the latest IT systems and learning pods hanging from a central atrium, as well as a large performing arts space. It will have a floor area of 8km2.

Situated on the town’s St Peter’s Street, Morgan Sindall will also build a car park and carry out landscaping work during the development, which is expected to completed by August next year.

The new building, which will house about 950 pupils and replaces sixth-forms at three high schools in the town, will achieve a rating of “excellent” from BREEAM. It will include a number of sustainable features such as high insulation levels and rainwater harvesting.

Morgan Sindall will also build concrete ducts under the building to allow natural thermal energy from the earth’s core to supplement the heating supply.
