AWW was appointed as the architects to deliver this new college in Bristol. This unique curved, iconic structure is the centre piece of the new Hengrove Park development. The design features curved external pre-engineered cladding and a full height atrium and winter garden internally.

After reducing the energy demand through passive means, the environmental impact was further reduced through the use of a biomass boiler and roof mounted solar panels  achieving BREEAM Very Good.

The new campus includes hair and beauty, a catering college, motor vehicle workshops, a construction skills department, special needs and general college facilities.
