Greater Brighton Metropolitan College
Willmott Dixon have appointed Firetec to complete the Intumescent Paint works to the Greater Brighton Metropolitan College. The project, procured via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, will see the company create a 3,000m2 extension to an existing tower block on the campus to provide the new Centre for Creative and Digital Industries. This will become a key regional training facility for young people and those looking to retrain, while also providing local businesses with a sustainable pipeline of skilled workers. The extension, on an existing car park, will become a welcoming new ‘shop front’ for the college, set within a large public space that includes secure bike storage for staff, students and visitors. In addition to studios and classrooms specifically designed for creative and digital specialisms, it delivers updated facilities and improved public access to the college’s other subject provision located on site. Firetec will be completing 60 Minute’s Intumescent coatings to the structural steel sections within the large main atrium area.
