Doncaster’s boost for education
Construction of a major extension to Doncaster Further Education College is under way, to provide a £71M state of the art education complex on the banks of the river Don.
The development consists of two blocks of five and six storeys connected by steel footbridge links and observation areas. Distinctive roof cantilevers over the entrances to both buildings will be supported by full height circular hollow section columns.
Bone Steel has won the contract to design, fabricate and erect 3200t of structural steelwork, including cellular beams and trusses.
Main contractor is HBG; architect is DLA Architecture, and structural engineer is Arup.
