Cheshire college to get major upgrade

Posted on by in News

Caddick Construction has been appointed to build a new 2,229m2 extension at Loreto Sixth Form College in Hulme, a project that will accommodate 264 new students.

The new three-storey campus building is being constructed on Moss Road West adjacent to the existing campus on Chichester Road South.

With an emphasis on environmental sustainability and minimising operational carbon, the new campus building will have 39.8% of its electrical demands met by renewable sources. Features include air source heat pumps, solar panels, passive ventilation systems and night cooling.

Sustainable forms of transport will also be encouraged as part of the campus investment, with the introduction of EV charging and bike storage for 100 bikes.

The new building will sit alongside the existing college building, with facilities to enhance the learning environment and curriculum delivery. These include 20 classrooms, a lecture theatre with a seating capacity of 200 and a new study centre.

Michael Jaffrain, Principal at Loreto College, said: “We are excited about the opportunities this expansion brings and to maximise our green space for biodiversity and air quality.”
