Ellis Williams Architects

Burnley Campus

We have a passion for creating
great buildings and spaces that
people enjoy using. Our approach
is collaborative, enthusiastic and
consistent - design individuality
that is achieved by an ability to
listen and reflect client need

Unsere Passion ist das Entwerfen von Gebäuden und Räumen, in denen sich Menschen wohlfühlen. Unsere Haltung ist gemeinschaftlich, enthusiastisch und anspruchsvoll. Unsere Ergebnisse sind getragen von der Fähigkeit des Zuhörens und der Umsetzung der Anforderungen und Wünsche des Bauherrn.

 

 

The campus is a new, 13,300sqm single building that houses a co-located partnership of education and community facilities and serves the Daneshouse and Stoneyholme wards of Burnley.

The building comprises Thomas Witham 6th Form (600 places), Reedley Hallows Nursery and Children’s Centre (60 places), Barden Primary School (2 form entry), Holly Grove SEN Primary School (50 places), Burnley Public Library and the Burnley and Pendle Faith Centre. 

Burnley Campus is at the heart of Lancashire County Council’s Community Transformation Policy. The Council wanted the campus to help regenerate community cohesion and ease recent tensions by providing an all-inclusive building with a ‘village square’ as its focus leading to a community concourse and educational courtyard.

An extensive community and stakeholder consultation process ensured that the building was designed with education at the heart of the community.

 

Neil Adshead

DirectorNeil Adshead

Joined EWA in: 2001

Qualifications: BA(Hons) BArch ARB 

Neil qualified as an architect in October 1996, joining Ellis Williams Architects in 2001 after 5 years of design and project running experience mainly in the commercial sector. He joined the practice to gain more experience in the education sector and has acted as project architect on a number of new build and refurbishment projects of various sizes including Liverpool Community College, West Cheshire and Stroud Colleges.

The experience gained as a project architect interfacing with clients, consultants and contractors has provided the essential understanding required to ensure results at all levels within the design and construction process.

Neil was promoted to associate in 2005 which coincided with the practice involvement in the Lancashire BSF programme and he was immediately responsible for leading separate teams and managing design on all 3 phases.

The Lancashire BSF programme provided a valuable understanding of the often complex and involved PFI procurement routes through which clients and architects must navigate to realise exemplar buildings.

More recently Neil lead the EWA team on the highly prestigious National Cycling Centre project in Manchester. The addition of a new indoor BMX track to the existing Velodrome was intended to provide not only a training facility for British Cycling’s elite riders ahead of the forthcoming Olympics but also to serve the wider community for years to come.

Neil became Director of the newly opened Manchester office earlier this year.
