Project Detail

The Lakeside Campus, Brooksby Melton College

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2015 Finalist

Brooksby Melton College’s new Lakeside Campus provides modern teaching facilities for motor vehicle, service engineering, construction, floristry, horticulture, environmental industries and foundation learning.

The campus is also home to a new multi purpose sports hall and an all-weather sports pitch.

Located in countryside between Melton Mowbray and Leicester, the contemporary facilities are designed to attract students for the wide curriculum offered. The new scheme also links existing teaching facilities to create a ribbon development. 

Project Overview

With so many subjects with different teaching requirements, the objective was to centralise the learning zones but give each of the five buildings their own dedicated space, character and form.

The facilities allow students to learn both inside buildings and outside. Students learning about brick laying and joinery can experience completing tasks outside in real world climate conditions.

A safe environment for pedestrian routes has been created with dedicated zones for cars, buses, lorries, forklift trucks, tractors and combine harvester.

Low running costs for the college were a priority and the buildings achieved the targeted BREEAM Excellent rating. 
Many of the buildings use the space on their roofs with a large array of photovoltaics. 
Rainwater is collected and stored for plants in the green house.
