    the existing construction skills centre to
    accommodate the relocation of existing
    curriculum subjects.

    The structure takes two separate forms with
    the front half has two floors of classroom
    spaces formed from a steel and composite
    slab structure. The rear of the building utilises
    long span cellular roof beams to create large
    double height workshop areas.

    The foundations are a shallow pad solution,
    with a gas protection system under the ground
    bearing slab.
