Brooksby Melton College’s Catering & Hospitality Building and Rural Food Centre provides training for students and a rural food shop and restaurant for the people of Melton.
Built on the old Barton Bus depot site, the town centre facility is a two storey modern environment with dedicated classrooms and specialist facilities for hospitality and catering training with fully equipped kitchens.
The building is also used as a location for demonstration events and promotes locally sourced produce.
To encourage people in the main block of the building is laid out in an ‘L’ shape. The public/restaurant aspect of the building is set within the corner of the ‘L’ and is formed by two adjoining triangular shapes.
Two open glass facades to face and attract the public and a patio area has been incorporated into the design for alfresco dining.
The major challenge during construction was the site’s main road location on the College’s campus, which remained fully operational throughout the works. The site was also less than 10 metres away from Melton Theatre
The building successfully achieved a BREEAM rating of Excellent, using new technologies and materials to maximise the building’s efficiency and minimise its environmental impact.
