The Skills Centre at Catterick, is operated by Darlington College, and is strategically located to serve the Ministry of Defence and North Yorkshire community.
Harrow were appointed as Lead designer and Project Manager for a series of refurbishment and remodelling projects to bring the facility up to the same standards as the main Darlington College Campus, providing high level training and services. Our consultancy services extended also to providing CDM Co-ordination duties.
Harrow initially carried out feasibility options and space planning analysis of the entire building, and campus estate, in order to identify more efficient methods of utilising the existing space. Following the feasibility stage we were appointed to carry out full design duties and Project Manage the construction works through to completion, whilst keeping the college facility operational.
The remodelling scheme involved formation of new:
- Painting and Decorating Workshop facilities
- ‘state of the art’ IT suites
- changing/WC/shower facilities
- staff accommodation, including ancillary welfare facilities
“We’ve had an excellent response to the new facilities from everyone that’s experienced them, whether in or behind the treatment chair, and Harrow have done an excellent job in turning our aspirations for the project into a highly professional working environment.”
