The Ebbw Vale Learning Zone is a new FE campus of approximately 13,000sq m for Coleg Gwent that opened in September 2012. The Learning Zone is part of a wider regeneration project on a former Steelworks site in an economically deprived area in the South Wales valleys.
The Learning Zone was constructed by Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council and is now occupied by the College on a long lease. Keystone Projects supported this project from the feasibility stages, through business case submissions, design briefing and construction. As well as monitoring the final stages of design and construction we managed the procurement of FF&E and the occupation strategy. The building is entirely designed to the College’s brief and in that respect our role as tenant’s representative has encompassed many of the functions of Project Manager.
This highly environmentally friendly campus was awarded a rare BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, and includes an extensive green roof and gardens, as well as heating and electricity supplied from a district heating CHP Energy Centre.
The college facilities include provision for teaching construction-related subjects, hair and beauty courses, science, creative arts, business and media studies. The advanced ICT technology design takes into account future conversion to thin client technology, raised access floors, full Wifi, VOIP telephony, digital signage, enhanced IT/video conferencing rooms.
