Stockport College Campus Development
Austin-Smith:Lord was appointed by Stockport College as masterplanners, lead consultant and designers of their Phase 1 and 2 redevelopment programme. This programme was designed to bring forward a 21st Century Flagship Campus on the existing site and the recently acquired St Thomas Hospital site, which together sit on the southerly approach to the town centre.
This 37,500m² flagship campus enhances the College’s image and profile across all areas of the curriculum and further strengthens its reputation.
The new campus reflects an exciting mix of substantial new build accommodation, retained and refurbished Victorian listed buildings and the best elements of the previously existing estate.
