KSS demonstrates a benchmark-setting environmental strategy 

The newly opened 26,100 m² campus for South East Essex College features inspirational teaching spaces, a soaring ETFE-clad atrium, a distinctive red pod and organic-shaped dining decks. And for the first time, the Learning and Skills Council increased funding for a building based on estimated in-use energy savings. The state-of-the-art Southend Campus replaces two former sites for the college. The overall form of the building was inspired by the human body. The Pod performance space, with its dramatic red exterior, is envisaged as the lungs of the building, while the learning spaces and escape stairs resemble a spinal column in plan - the services run through this spinal column literally like a nervous system..
