The Global UTC Academy in Hillingdon, designed by Surface to Air architects, provides 800 places for 14-19 year old students specialising in Creative, Technical and Digital Media and Entrepreneurship for the media industry.
The building is arranged over 4 floors and designed around a large roof lit atrium, creating dynamic internal circulation spaces and providing the college with good passive supervision, which is integral to the college’s pedagogical ethos.
Engenuiti provided structural, civil and geotechnical engineering services for the new Academy. Working closely with the architects and Yorkon, the design team have developed a design concept based on a hybrid modular solution which maximizes off-site constuction, creates efficient floorplates, minimising cost and delivery programme risks.
