Luton Sixth Form College

The construction of a major new 16,870m2 education facility.  The work included demolition of an outmoded existing building within the Campus to make room for the new building.

The project had to be carefully managed to allow the safe and efficient operation of the College to continue whilst construction took place. Work has now commenced on the external landscape including car parking and new sports areas.
