CEMAST, Fareham CollegePO13 9YA

 

EWA have been commissioned to develop design proposals for a new facility for Fareham College called CEMAST - Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Advanced Skills Training.  The College already offers marine and aviation courses, both full and part time in conjunction with local employers and apprenticeship schemes.  As part of its wider estate strategy the College is relocating these specialist courses to a new purpose designed building on a site that is part of the Daedalus Enterprise Zone located on the Gosport Peninsula in Hampshire; an existing airfield site that is being redeveloped, with particular emphasis on aviation and marine employment.

We undertook a feasibility study and design proposals for the new facility, including:

• Review of the potential plots on the Daedalus site for their suitability for the College

• Developing the brief and accommodation schedule to satisfy the College’s curriculum demands

• Exploration of different room adjacencies and layouts to provide the optimum use of space and site configuration

• Production of elevations and 3d visuals for both costing and consultation with the architectural intention and ideas

The site selected is at the gateway to the Daedalus site; a very prominent location that gives the College opportunity for a visually open and attractive frontage to act as a signifier of new development.  The organisation of the building on the site and landscaping maximises the views to the airfield as well as providing a buffer to the prevailing winds and allows for future expansion.  Our architectural concept for the new building is for the accommodation to be in two volumes under a large-span roof – like an airplane wing.

The workshop spaces being efficiently organised in an orthogonal layout and the social / resource spaces with a free-form wrap around façade near the approach to the site. These spaces as well as being used by students will be open to the public and local businesses, which will enable the College to maintain and develop new relationships.  Large, column free spaces are required for the workshops as the students work on actual aircraft and marine engines, so we needed to carefully consider the structure and environmental strategy.  As part of the process we provided information for costing to ensure the proposals were developed with the budget constraints and for consultation with stakeholders; local Planning authorities, student users, specialist businesses and other partners.
