SURGO Construction has begun work on a second key multi-million-pound project for Middlesbrough College.
Last September Surgo’s team started work on a design and build contract to extend the college’s STEM Centre at its Middlehaven campus by 1100 sqm. The project, which received £2.7m of DfE funding, is being constructed to enable the college to deliver a higher level of technical training, as the sole deliverer of Institute of Technology (IoT) accredited courses in the Tees Valley.
This latest project to get underway will see the contractor deliver the T Levels Digital Centre (Digital Centre), a new build 1,600 sqm three-storey facility now under construction on the College’s Middlesbrough Campus.
The Digital Centre which is part of a £3.2m Dfe funded campus wide T-Level initiative also including a new Construction Workshop and expanded catering facilities, will become home to specialist teaching spaces for media studies including subjects such TV and film production as well as computer games.
Designed by Bond Bryan Architects, the building will be clad with a contemporary metal envelope and will include several elements of specialised mechanical and electrical installations to meet the needs of the intense building services provision associated with the digital subjects which are to be taught.
