ST ALBANS — Over the Easter break, whilst students were enjoying some down-time from their studies, the redevelopment of the St Albans campus ploughed on.
With the college currently in Phase Two of the £62 million redevelopment, construction on the Evolution Centre has been in a steady progress, with windows adorning the shell of the new learning facility.
The Evolution Centre, which will boast 49 brand new classrooms for students, multi-purpose spaces for teaching and engaging interactive learning sessions and a specialist facility for the college special needs provision, is due for completion by late October.
Approaching the half-way point of the excited new redevelopment project, the campus will eventually oversee the creation of a dedicated, state-of-the-art Construction Centre, which will house modern learning facilities for Electrical Installation, Plumbing, Carpentry and Brickwork students as part of Phase Three.
Accompanying Phase Three will be a dedicated Sports Pavilion, housing both hydrotherapy and physiotherapy areas, six new changing rooms and specialist facilities for sports and academy students.
With the completion of Phase Three in summer 2022, the final phase will oversee the creation of the focal point of the thriving new campus. The Gateway building will replace the existing Reception area and Learning Resource Centre (LRC) with a brand-new, modern facility.
Complete with a new campus cafe, library and specialist facilities throughout for our Supported Learning department, the Gateway building will form the centrepiece of the new development, occupying the space opposite the existing Reception and LRC.
