Chippenham Campus, Wiltshire College

Contract Value: £2.4 Million

Main Contractor: Willmott Dixon

Client: Wiltshire College

F P Hurley was selected to provide the mechanical services for this state-of-the-art campus hub. The project was part of Wiltshire College’s impressive expansion plan and involved a three-storey campus hub built to a high eco specification. The project achieved BREEAM Excellent.

The new facility accommodates 1,000 full-time students and aims to support the growing demand for apprenticeships. The building provides construction, engineering and motor vehicle workshops, hair and beauty salons, music, media and art studies, sports science laboratory, sensory room for learners with disabilities, conference facilities, IT classrooms and general teaching space.

We were appointed due to our strong track record in delivering educational buildings within live working environments. When we work in and around occupied premises, we implemented procedures to ensure that the day to day life of the buildings adjacent to the site were not disrupted.

The mechanical installation focused on low-carbon technology, providing heating and cooling via a 150kW ground source heat pump.
