Gower College Campus

SWANSEA

Combining and consolidating the further education academic and vocational faculties on to an extended campus at Tycoch, the project concept has distinct Learning Clusters linked by a legible ‘Circulation Spine.’ Classrooms, practical workshops and group learning spaces co-exist with more informal self-directed open plan study spaces and resource areas, offering improved teaching and student management whilst promoting a modern and diverse learning experience.

  • Client Gower College
  • Completed 2019
  • Budget Approx £4.5m

The project comprised 13,000m2 new build and 16,750m2 refurbishment and the faculties included:
Motor Vehicle, Sport, Engineering, Hospitality & Catering, Travel & Tourism, Creative Arts, Hair & Beauty, the Business College, Business, Health, Social Care and Child Care, ILS, LRC and Management.

This simple envelope design has green roofs throughout, plant centralisation, a Sports barn with lightweight roof integrating PV panels across acting as the renewable energy source for the entire scheme and site wide energy systems.

The consolidation proposals are part of a wider solution that impacts on the College’s Gorseinon campus and other outlying facilities which resulted in a comprehensive Strategic Plan for the College.
