Pochin’s has secured two education and sports projects at Reaseheath College in Nantwich worth a combined £6.5m.
The contractor has won a deal to build the College’s 20,000 sq ft Agri-Tech Centre, which includes a single-storey workshop and neighbouring two-storey teaching block, with teaching space, a workshop, offices, and a specialised plant room.
The Agri-Tech Centre will focus on areas including robotics and agricultural engineering, and has been part-funded by a £5.6m grant from the Cheshire and Warrington LEP.
Pochin’s will also build a 16,000 sq ft multi-purpose sports hall for the college, which will provide five different sports courts, changing facilities for neighbouring 3G pitches, and teaching areas including space for specialists sports science education.
The sports hall has also been part-funded by the LEP.
Pochin’s is due to start both projects this month and will complete in May 2018. Ellis Williams is the architect.
Jim Nicholson, chief executive of Pochin’s, said: “Having worked on a number of projects at Reaseheath College over the years, we have seen first-hand the development of the Cheshire site into a world class education institution.
“We are extremely proud of the trusted relationship we have developed with the college and look forward to delivering these latest additions to the growing campus.”
Ben Hunt, head of property at Reaseheath College, added: “We’ve built a reputation for state-of-the-art facilities that enable the very best education and technical provision for our students.
