The contractor company, Seddon, has recently won a project to construct the new £3.8M Bolton Sixth Form College extension, with work on the project scheduled to commence this month.
The new extension will include features such as study spaces, teaching spaces, office spaces, and refectory spaces, all of which will enable a further 230 students to enrol at the Greater Manchester sixth form institution.
Alterations and refurbishment to the interior of the building, onto which the extension will eventually be attached, have already taken place in July while the actual construction of the extension will not go ahead until the end of the month, continuing through to term time but with minimal disruption to the staff and students of the college.
A second phase of construction will be undertaken throughout the summer of 2020, which will continue alterations and finally connect the extension, which should be completed this year, to the original building, with the second phase finishing in the autumn of 2020.
The Regional Director at Seddon, Ed Wootton stated: “This extension will provide an already excellent college with much-needed facilities that will enrich the lives of both students and staff.
“With room for another 230 students, we’re excited to deliver a project which will make a real difference to the learning experience of young people in Bolton.”
Seddon has had a history with Bolton Sixth Form College after completing an extension of the student refectory back in 2013 so, naturally, they were awarded the newest contract alongside 10 Architects, a Manchester-based architectural company, WML Consulting, structural designers, and the Waterman Group Limited, a mechanical and engineering service company.
The Deputy Principal at Bolton Sixth Form College, Lesley Hart added: “I am delighted that Seddon was awarded the contract. It is a local company that I have previously worked with and I was extremely happy with the extension completed in 2013.”
