Arts and design centre at Somerset College to undergo major refurb
A well-known British construction company has been selected to redevelop the arts and design centre at Somerset College, a recent news report in the local business media was able to reveal.
BAM will carry out extensive work on the existing 1970s Arts House on the college’s Taunton campus. The contractor for the £7 million project will put a new roof and exterior glazing on the main four-storey arts building, as well as giving it new mechanical and electrical services.
Additionally, an existing four-storey building will be given major structural works to open the areas up for exhibition and circulation and to improve the natural light in the space, while a new single-storey gluam structural framed extension will complete the quadrangle of buildings and provide new reprographic and theatre performance space.
Any modern building of this type should also be equipped with a suitable range of access restriction systems.
