THURROCK’S new college campus is being built quickly.
Both the East and the West building of the new Thurrock Campus, set to open to students in September 2014, are taking shape.
The frames of the £45 million site, near the train station in Grays High Street, are already in place opposite Thurrock Council offices and next to the college’s Thurrock Learning Campus building.
The East Building steel frame and staircases now fully completed, whilst the West Building’s steel frame is 50 per cent complete and is being built using a 50-tonne crane.
A series of displays have just gone up around the hoardings to give people a taste of what the building will look like when it is finished.
The images show the design of the outside of the building as well as some images of what the indoor area will look like.
An outdoor seating area will link the two buildings and the grassy area outside will stay The four-storey West building will be accessible to students, staff and members of the public and will contain restaurants, a health centre, a presentation space, a shop and advice centre.
Above this there will be a library and study facilities as well as a computer suite.
The three-storey East building will contain a well-equipped workshop and studio spaces linked to applied science, technology, media and creative arts courses. There will also be facilities for art, design, logistics, engineering and IT courses.
