New engineering academy set to be built in Coventry

Leave a Comment

The Coventry City Council has just approved plans for the construction of a new engineering academy on the grounds of the Westwood Academy, sources in the local media report.

The 3-storey building will eventually cater for the educational needs of up to 640 students, and will also help create 50 new jobs in the process. The academy is intended to provide full-time education for students aged 14 to 19 and work with the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors, National Grid and Bosch.

The Warwick Manufacturing Group, which submitted the plans, hoped the venue will open in September 2014. In a statement the group said: "The building will be more like a business than a school with flexible working spaces, and specialist dedicated engineering facilities. There will also be space for our business partners to come in and work alongside our students, truly embedding business and education."

Given the technical nature of the new education centre, as well as the fact that it will most likely house expensive educational and technological equipment, installing a solid and reliable access control solution is really a must, and this is specifically the area where Access Control UK could easily leverage its extensive experience in the field.
