City College Norwich

  • Norwich-City-College

Project Description

Econicboards were specified to sheath the steel structure and provide an airtight, low carbon  weather and fire resistance barrier behind the timber cladding facade.

Due to open in September 2013, the new creative arts building will support the College’s vision to deliver outstanding and innovative creative arts training.

Designed by architects BDP in an attractive Norfolk barn style, the building will feature 3 purpose-built floors dedicated to different areas of the creative, performing and digital arts.

The ground floor will be mainly given over to performing arts rehearsal spaces; the first floor will be home to digital arts training, including a TV studio and music recording studios, interactive media, graphics, animation, photography and media editing suites; and the top floor will be home to traditional art and design, fashion and textiles and cultural heritage/craft-based programmes.

As well as providing a vibrant space to stimulate students’ creativity, the new building has been designed to be low-carbon.  The designs meet the BREEAM Excellent standard, with “green” features including natural and mechanical ventilation systems, ground source heating, brown water recycling and solar panels.
