Reaseheath College is one of the UK’s leading specialist land-based colleges based in Nantwich, Cheshire. It offera a range of full-time diplomas, apprenticeships and degrees, ideal for those looking for an exciting career in the land-based industries. The rural campus environment added a new 20,000 sq. ft Agri-Tech facility in 2018 to provide improved technological education provision consisting of a single storey workshop block and a neighbouring two-storey teaching block.
The facility combines all aspects of agricultural innovation, mechanisation and advanced engineering. In addition to general teaching and office areas, the facility also provides workshop space, specialised facilities for robotics, tractor workshops and showroom, GPS and the most advanced agricultural engineering machines associated with precision farming. A key area of the brief was to provide industry standard facilities to enable the College’s Agricultural Industry partners to use the building for their own research, for conferences and for industry events.
The development has a consistency of character with the existing rural campus buildings but also creates a business-friendly front door to the college. The timber building envelope provides a unifying “cloak” to a range of volumes and types of practical and learning spaces.
The facility responded to governmental policy and ensured that present and future needs of the industry were met through the delivery of outstanding educational facilities.
