We’re delighted to share that Milton Keynes College Group has submitted its planning application for the new home for the South Central Institute of Technology (SCIoT) at Bletchley.
The work will see extensive refurbishment and extension of the existing Andrew Peck building on the junction of Sherwood Drive and Selwyn Grove, close to the entrance to Bletchley rail station. Once complete it will provide high-quality learning environments, designed to be welcoming and inclusive for all those attending the new institution.
The main entrance will move to the south side of the building for better access to the rest of the campus and nearby transport hubs. The existing building will be connected to the new extension via a glazed wall link, with a high-quality external frontage befitting the IoT’s status as a landmark learning centre.
Following a virtual planning consultation, hosted by the College and Tetra Tech in May, we have worked carefully to create a welcoming and inclusive technology building that is a distinctive landmark in Bletchley and enhances the existing College Campus, attracting new learners and encouraging business and community involvement.
The building will be highly sustainable with a strong emphasis on supporting the health and wellbeing of all building users, delivering a truly unique facility that leads the way for educational schemes.
GSS are working as Architect and Lead Consultant on this scheme, as we continue to work closely with Milton Keynes College at their Oxford and Reading sites.
