Guildford College set for £90 million overhaul 

Planning permission has been approved for a £90 million redevelopment of Guildford College’s Stoke Park Campus, designed by specialist education architects, Nightingale Associates. The 28,000sq m scheme, involving a complete overhaul of the College’s facilities at its Stoke Park campus – is one of Nightingale Associates’ largest ever college projects.

The multi-million pound development will include a number of unique and bold features, including a series of individually-designed ‘Pavilions in the Park’, which will form elegant ‘Academies’, each displaying its own identity within a consistent architectural language. There will also be a total integration of landscape and buildings, offering an opportunity for outside ‘rooms’ and teaching spaces for the College's 12,000 students.

Nightingale Associates has been working with the college to develop a proposal that will transform the college’s built environment in order to conform to new Government initiatives aiming to close the skills gap by 2020.

Christian Lawrence, Director at the Dartford office, said:
“The bold, contemporary theme of this building is key to ensuring a simple, clear organisational framework and reflects the college’s mission, character and qualities.”

Construction is on schedule to start towards late 2009.
