ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2016

Project Detail

Motor Vehicle Engineering Workshop, Leicester College

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2016 Finalist

The Motor Vehicle Engineering Workshop is a modern single storey teaching facility at Leicester College’s Abbey Park Campus for the growing numbers of learners signing up for motor vehicle engineering courses.

The building is the first phase of the College’s new vocational Skills Village development funded by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP), one of its first projects in Leicester.

The new workshop includes two classrooms and extensive practical facilities for car and motorcycle skills. 

Project Overview

The steel framed building provides 600 square metres of workshop and teaching spaces with facilities for up to 80 learners at one time.

Modern and contemporary in design, the front of the building includes a large, arched feature window to maximise natural light in the classrooms and to provide a design statement for the first building in the initial phase of the wider development. The workshop roof is fitted with glazed roof lights and large glazed screens.

The new building has state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical installations including electronically operated car ramps, compressed air lines, retractable vehicle extraction ventilation systems, high level radiant panels, LED lighting and IT installations throughout.
