Boston College transforms main entrance in revamp
WORK to revamp Boston college continues with the latest development on transforming the main entrance.
The college’s current main entrance has been in existence since its initial construction in 1964 so the plans to revive and provide up to date plans to students is very exciting.
These plans will incorporate a brand new Learning Resources Centre and learner services department.
A college spokesperson said: “The new extension will provide much improved study spaces for our learners whilst also allowing other areas such as Art and Design to expand their facilities. As the final phase of the extensive refurbishment the College has undertaken over the past year is developed, we’re delighted that we can offer our learners a better experience at college.”
The land in front of the college’s existing main entrance has been stripped down and the piling works to prepare the new buildings foundations have been completed. The site will now be prepared for the main build which will incorporate a glassed walkway from the current entrance to showcase student work, leading to the new two storey building.
The new buildings first floor will provide a brand new entrance where current and prospective students will be able to apply for courses and speak to the College’s dedicated support staff such as counsellors, information officers and student support officers.
The second floor will house a brand new learning resource centre with dedicated computer hubs, work spaces and classrooms for students to utilise for studying in their free time.
Not only will the new development see brand new facilities and specially designed study spaces built for the benefit of new and existing students, but it will also free up valuable space for areas such as art, design, photography and media to expand their studios as students continue to choose College for its excellent real-life facilities.
The new building is expected to be completed in August ready for returning students and the new intake to make full use of the brand new college facilities and facade.
