Project Win for OSBS at East Norfolk Sixth Form College

  • Elliott Offsite Solutions builds East Norfolk 6th Form College

Elliott Off-Site Building Solutions has been commissioned by East Norfolk Sixth Form College to design and build a new canteen and two-storey classroom block. This continues a hugely successful relationship with the College established in 2003. Three separate contracts in that time have included the current works, two further classroom blocks and a sports hall for a total of £7m.

The new two-storey classroom block will include 16 classrooms, toilets and office accommodation with the external elevations containing a mixture of red brickwork and grey Kingspan cladding to complement the existing buildings on the College site. The building will include a covered walkway linking the classroom block to the new canteen.

The new single-storey canteen building will include an open seating area with up to 196 people capacity. Also within the buildings footprint will be a kitchen, servery, toilets and storage provision. Sliding folding doors will lead out onto a large terraced area facing the College playing fields to the South of the site. The building will have the same external appearance as the classroom block in keeping with the existing College site.

Both new buildings will be formed using a combination of structural steel frame and timber infill panels with concrete floors throughout with all internal and external finishes and mechanical and electrical installations meeting the College’s specification.

The Elliott Off-Site team will start on site in early September with overall completion of the projects expected in April 2012. Once completed, the whole south facing vista of the College site will include the five buildings constructed by Elliott Off-Site.
