Petroc is undergoing a ten year programme of improvements which will see approximately 5,000 m² of classrooms and internal space remodelled and re-equipped with new Information Technology (IT) and teaching equipment.
Atkins is the lead consultant for the project, which is being funded by the Government’s Enhanced Renewal Grant, and has, to date, overseen the redevelopment of four buildings.
Our work includes a radical transformation of the college’s iconic but dilapidated 59 year old C-block, which is visible from Barnstaple town centre. 1,500m2 of internal space was remodelled into state-of-the-art facilities designed to increase utilization and improve the learning environment.
Externally the fabric of this three storey building was rejuvenated with new cladding and replacement windows.
Atkins also oversaw major improvements to college’s central hub area which acts a crossover space and main access point to various buildings. High quality interior design created a visually striking and functionally enhanced area which has been highly acclaimed by staff and students alike.
