Developed on land adjacent to the Sixth Form Centre, the design for the T-Level Centre was driven by the specific objectives and educational needs of Middlesbrough College.
Designed over three levels, it provides exciting, high-quality accommodation to support the college’s digital curriculum with a design of sufficient flexibility that it can be adapted to the college’s future needs.
Sitting harmoniously amongst other campus buildings, it has a gross internal floor area of circa 1534.05m2 and contains
- A TV and film room and two editing suites at ground floor level (523.35m2)
- Games design network and cyber programming via five classrooms plus a staff room on the first floor – 469.72m2
- Generic IT and theory zone- on the second floor, which measures 541m2 and features seven classrooms
The building layout primarily has rooms located off a two-sided central ‘spine’ corridor, the double height Hub enhancing the space by providing visibility to the social hub at the entrance to the building, which provides a touch down for students and staff while creating a striking front façade
