Groundworks Begin at Northampton College’s New Digital Academy

Following an online sod cutting ceremony in early May 2020, groundworks have now begun on the 3-storey extension to Block B, at Northampton College’s Booth Lane campus.

GSSArchitecture are working as Architects, Lead Consultant and Principal Designers on the project, which consists of a 1,300 square metre extension within an existing courtyard at the College, offering purpose-built teaching spaces and offices for staff.

Once complete this will be home to the College’s new Digital Academy, offering a range of courses and apprenticeships intended to help students into digital careers by improving their professional IT skills.

GSSArchitecture are working alongside Main Contractor, SDC Builders Ltd., to deliver this state-of-the-art facility, which has been partly funded by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership’s (SEMLEP) share of the Local Growth Fund.
