New Extensions and Refurbishment of Grade 2 List Building

As part of a £7.5 million investment, the new building was connected to Greestone Centre, formerly occupied by the University of Lincoln’s art department, by a glazed corridor.

The new two and three-storey building replaced the current workshop on site, which added more tuition rooms and accommodation.

The new steel-framed building required excavation of 2,500 m3 of spoil to form a partial basement. It is clad in Ancaster Limestone sourced Grantham, with a roof divided into seven seperate slopes.

The works included straddling the new extension over the ancient Roman city wall & working around an ancient burial ground

There was created extremely limited extra parking added on site and extra landscaping.

The new college serves students aged 14-19 with an interest in engineering and science, offering full courses and apprenticeships at local businesses.

The courses are developed through a partnership of Lincoln College, University of Lincoln and Siemens Lincoln.

The existing grade 2 listed building formed part of the refurbishment element of the project.
