Completion for Energy Coast UTC

Eric Wright Construction has finished work on the Energy Coast University Technical College on Lillyhall Industrial Estate in Workington.

Commissioned through the Department for Education’s low value framework, the facilities include new technical and engineering workshops, meeting rooms, an SEN resource base, replacement sports pitch and a new changing pavilion.

Designed by architects Cassidy + Ashton and civil & structural engineer Curtins, the works also include the design and construction of a new pedestrian crossing to connect the college’s two primary sites.

James Eager, director for Eric Wright Construction said: “It is great to have delivered these superb new facilities on time, allowing the college and its staff to obtain the necessary training in advance of the new Autumn term.

“We have enjoyed a long relationship with the College, having originally built the facility back in 2013, and it is good to see continued investment and improvement in such an important local education establishment.”

Energy Coast UTC principal Cherry Tingle said: “Young people in West Cumbria will now have access to a truly stunning range of engineering, civil engineering and digital and cyber facilities, as well as a new sports pitch and changing rooms.

“We always work closely with employers to give students real work experiences and it has been a pleasure to see our students work with Eric Wright Construction throughout the esign and build process.”
