T-level Construction students produce designs for brand new building

Cirencester College’s T-level students were set a brief to design a brand new social hub for the College.

Lecturer of the Construction T-level Chris Lythgoe said: “The class were put into groups and tasked with designing a new ‘social hub’ for the College, where students can meet, socialise and work in groups. The brief included an outdoor seating area and a café, and the building needed to be  ‘carbon neutral’. Student Joel Snowdon has been working hard on his Google Sketchup skills during lockdown and produced some amazing CAD drawings of his group’s design.”

The Digital Skills Centre, set to be completed in early 2022 will be a landmark building that will transform the professional and technical provision at Cirencester College. Much of the Construction course will be taught inside the building once completed and the group have already been included in the design process.

Joel said: “I chose construction T-level as my option as it is the best course to take to become an architect, as well as the work experience that would be involved as well. ”
