Austin-Smith:Lord was appointed to assist Bridgwater College in the improvement and rationalisation of facilities across their Cannington Campus sites by addressing the improvement of teaching facilities at Rodway Farm. This was seen as an important project towards retaining the College’s position as a leading provider in the land-based education sector, achieving continuous improvement and continuing its key role with the Bridgwater and wider Sedgemoor economic and social community.

We provided a multi-disciplinary team to provide options and feasibility studies for a new build facility of some 900m2 to a challenging timescale. The resultant Stage C report was integral to helping the College secure funding support from the Skills and Funding Agency in late 2012.
