Work to begin on extension to Bolton Sixth Form College

The £3.8m project is set to commence at the end of this month

Work will shortly begin on Bolton Sixth Form College’s new £3.8 million extension. 

The build - which includes study areas, as well as teaching, office and refectory spaces - will allow room for a further 230 students to enrol at the college. 

The contract for the construction project was won by Seddon, whose previous projects for the college included a student refectory extension in 2013. Designs were drawn up by Manchester-based 10 Architect, with structural works designed by WML Consulting, and mechanical and engineering services completed by Waterman Group Limited. 

Internal alterations and refurbishment to the original building started on site in early July, while work on the new build extension will begin at the end of this month. 

The second phase of alterations, plus the connection of the new extension to the original building, will be undertaken in summer 2020, with the entire project due for completion that autumn. 

Work on the extension will be completed during term time, with minimum disruption forecast for Bolton Sixth Form College students and staff.
