CPMG project updates
Christ Church C of E Secondary Academy, Yardley Wood
We are supporting Willmott Dixon in the design of this school which is on site and due for completion in February 2021.
Christ Church provides an excellent learning and teaching environment for 1,150 secondary and sixth form students. With a specialism in work-related learning and employability skills it’s a mature environment with an identity that draws on the Birmingham Diocesan Academies Trust’s brand and Christian ethos.
Construction Skills Centre, John Ruskin College (Orbital South Colleges), South Croydon
A new teaching facility for Orbital South Colleges to assist in the development of local skills for the wider South Croydon community. The proposals will create accommodation for forty five students and for staff members. Trades include plumbing, carpentry, painting and decorating supporting further innovation in industry, and all as part of a collaborative programme with local employers.
Phase 1 of the project is currently on site and the design of Phase 2, incorporating a mezzanine floor and additional bay to the main building is underway the construction contract is due to be completed in April 2021.
Riseholme Hall, University of Lincoln
Working with GF Tomlinson and the University of Lincoln we have gained a Listed Building Consent for the refurbishment of Riseholme Hall. Work is underway with completion expected later in the year.
Digital, Transport and Logistics Academy (DTLA), Boston College
Located next to the CPMG designed EMAT Centre on Boston College's Rochford campus, this new wo-storey facility supports the introduction of new courses that will provide skills training for Lincolnshire's logistics and transportation industry with a focus on digital innovation and technologies for the future.
The Academy's facilities will include a transport workshop, computer rooms, a network and hardware computer room and a student break-out space.
Return to Dunelm HQ
When working with Dunelm on the design of their HQ in Leicester, it was clear that they possessed a keen eye for what was critical to them now and what was optional and could be provided later if needed: so it is that 9 years later the bridge link between the North and South wings of the HQ is being designed by the same team who designed the original building and first proposed the link all those years ago, CPMG, BSP Consulting and CPW.
Since it was built the Dunelm HQ has been able to support the growth from a business with c.100 stores and no online presence to a business with c.170 stores and a sizeable online presence. Occupancy has risen from an initial 400 staff to 680 people.
