Complete redevelopment of a college campus
Sir John Deane’s College is an extremely successful and popular sixth form college occupying a large site on the outskirts of Northwich town centre in Cheshire.
The existing college comprised a mixture of different buildings including an early 20th Century grammar school, 1980s teaching blocks and a number of semi-permanent mobile classrooms.
After being appointed through a limited design competition, Broadway Malyan’s initial brief was to rationalise this accommodation, demolishing some of the outdated buildings and incorporating new teaching facilities. The brief was subsequently expanded by the regional LSC to look at the complete redevelopment of the site to provide sustainable 21st Century teaching accommodation.
The project achieved BREEAM “very good” and a 15% reduction on standard CO2 emissions was calculated at detailed design stage.
