Construction starts on Bond Bryan Architects' £41 Million Hertford Regional College sites 

Construction has begun on the Broxbourne and Ware campuses of Hertford Regional College, both designed by Sheffield-based Bond Bryan Architects, the acknowledged leaders in FE design in the UK. The joint value of the two projects is £41 million. Hertford Regional College is a principal provider of post-16 and adult education and the project will provide the college with a 9,000 m2 facility at Broxbourne and a 9,500 m2 building at Ware. The new design for the Ware campus replaces the majority of the existing buildings but retains a Grade II listed building and caters for the phased replacement of the existing, outdated 1960’s teaching accommodation using three pavilions with glazed links arranged around a new courtyard. The Broxbourne site will also be replaced in the main whilst retaining the three newer elements within the site. Bruce Raw, associate director at Bond Bryan, explains: “The nature and function of the college has changed over recent years and the old, out-dated buildings no longer serve the students well, so this design provides a much more efficient use of limited space in order to open up the possibilities for teaching and learning. “The college has a great many students involved in a huge range of educational activities and the new buildings will give better access to facilities as well as creating a ‘shop front’ effect so the college can face the outside world. “We are also using a great deal of glass throughout the buildings to enhance security and to access natural light. “The contractors are now on-site and work is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2009 academic year.” GVA Grimley are project managers and AMEC is the main contractor.
