UNIVERSITY TECHNICAL COLLEGE PORTSMOUTH


Engineering future successes


Stride Treglown’s innovative triangular design for a new college in Portsmouth reflects a bigger focus on science, engineering and maths in the curriculum, writes Steve Menary


revolution in education that has seen the creation of free schools and university technical colleges (UTC) has also provided a challenge for architects. As specialisms extend into secondary education, designers must create buildings that reflect these uses.

A new UTC in Portsmouth is part of the employer-led programme offering the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) curriculum for students from the start of their options in Year 10. The STEM curriculum will be offered alongside the regular national curriculum in a project being driven by the University of Portsmouth, the Royal Navy and the city council to accommodate 600 students aged between 14 and 19.


The aim is to provide a specialism for students in electrical and mechanical engi- neering and advanced manufacturing to satisfy increased demand for skills in these areas from employers and the design needed to reflect this.


“The scheme is aimed at training up engi- neering technicians, and they wanted it to have an engineering feel,” says project architect Caroline Pitt from Stride Treglown, which teamed up with contrac- tors BAM Construct to bid for the contract. In February 2016, the duo won out. Describing its design approach, Stride


Treglown’s design statement says: “The guiding principle behind the design was to create a building that provides a high quality, energy-efficient learning environ- ment, which feels more akin to a workplace than a traditional school.” In this way, Stride Treglown has looked to the curriculum to drive the layout and design of the building, which shares a site with the existing Trafalgar School.
