Wiltshire College Students’ Environment to be Improved

Dale Potts
Faithful+Gould is to play a prominent role in the multi-million pound redevelopment of Wiltshire College.

Faithful+Gould has been appointed to provide quantity surveying expertise on the project, which will see significant investment in the Chippenham, Trowbridge and Lackham campuses. Each campus will have an individual theme, with Chippenham being 'technology', Trowbridge 'skills' and Lackham 'sustainability'.

Chris Rogers, regional director at Faithful+Gould Bristol, says: "We are delighted with our successful appointment to this project and aim to provide strong cost management to ensure the maximum value for money for the college. This commission is very important as it adds to our existing established track record in further education and follows our recent successful appointment to the Learning and Skills Council’s Framework for all regions."

The five year project will see major transformation in Wiltshire College's campus estate, with the Chippenham campus being the first to be developed. Work will start in summer 2009 and is due for completion in 2014.

Di Dale, principal of Wiltshire College, said: "The new Chippenham campus for Wiltshire College is a really exciting project. Our aim is to build an outstanding new college for the people of Chippenham and its surrounding communities. It is anticipated that work will start on the new building next summer."
