News: College town centre campus plans detailed


Working with GVA Grimley and Bond Bryan architects, Rotherham College of Arts and Technology have submitted an outline planning application for a new campus in Rotherham town centre. The plans are to create a £59m, 34,000 sq m unified landmark building to a high specification on the site of the current Eastwood and Clifton buildings used by the college. It is expected that the new facilities will boost the image and profile of the college, and the town, to attract and retain students and raise the quality of learner experiences. The plans describe the problems with the current estate and how the new build will contribute to the Rotherham Renaissance programme by creating a key landmark building in the centre of town, improve external spaces and the public realm, improve access to public transport and link the college to businesses and retailers in the town. The key concept of the RCAT building is based around a central atrium space surrounded by teaching wings, Curriculum Learning Centres, a restaurant and other social facilities.
