Plessington Technology College, Bromborough

Our work at Plessington started with the preparation of a development plan to meet the needs of rising numbers and the changing needs of the curriculum.

The extent of the development required work in a number of locations due to the existing disposition of accommodation and was structured to be implemented over 3 phases. The development comprises:-

* A three-storey classroom/CDT wing providing additional accommodation as well as solving the problems of access and means of escape to the existing three-storey block that it is built alongside. A new vertical circulation core forms part of this building, which contains a lift and acts as a link between three previously separated blocks of accommodation.

* A two-storey classroom wing containing 12 classrooms toilets and staff offices. This building in itself formed the initial phase of the new assembly/entrance complex.

* A new assembly hall, main entrance foyer, library and administration offices. Six new classrooms also formed part of this construction phase. A new site access and bus lay-by was built at this stage opening up a new approach to the school for pupils, staff and visitors.

* Adaptations of existing accommodation to provide 3 new laboratories, art room, 2 new CDT rooms, SEN base and an extended dining area.

* A new sports hall with associated teaching and fitness suites designed to be accessible for community use

All phases are now complete. .. The overall building cost for this project is £7.5M. The design places emphasis upon sustainability and in addition to maximising the use of daylight. The form of the building is used to create natural means of ventilation.
