HBG awarded £4.26 million college building contract in Nottingham

HBG Construction, which today has a portfolio of work representing over £148 million in the education sector [including £92 million in university work], has been awarded a design and build contract to provide a large new teaching facility for New College Nottingham [ncn].

The £4.26 million project relocates the long-established ncn High Pavement Sixth Form College from its current suburban location back to central Nottingham. The facility is located within an extremely tight site adjacent to a major city-centre university complex, within a conservation area featuring protected trees. Completion is scheduled for August 2002.

The design and construction process involves retaining walls due to the sloping nature of the site, mass concrete pads, a steel frame, a mix of brickwork and metal cladding, with feature structural glazing and a curved standing seam overhanging roof. An elegant entrance and foyer will also be a feature of the building.
