Project Description

Agritech Building

Client: Abingdon & Witney College

Role: Quantity Surveying

Sector: Further Education

Formally known as the Agritech Innovation Centre, the building is situated on the college’s Common Leys campus on the outskirts of Witney, Oxfordshire. The new centre is equipped with the latest technology and modern learning spaces. The centre, which allows for the care of animals in line with the latest working practices, provides a highly-technical environment for students, supporting courses and research relating to livestock. Importantly, the facility will also act as a key STEM hub.

The building’s modern design uses an ‘agricultural’ portfolio of materials which echo the farming context of the local area.

The project team consisted of Robothams Architects, Halligans Associates, Couch Consulting and E.G. Carter.
