East Berkshire College Extension
Area: 4,000 m2
Project Description
Within the Slough campus, existing workshops were refurbished together with the construction of a new extension to provide new teaching facilities for construction trades, comprising brickwork, plumbing and electrician work areas. Motor vehicle workshops with 4 post vehicle lifts and Carpentry workshops housing various machines were also provided in the scheme.

CBS carried out detailed site surveys and load assessments to establish whether the existing electrical distribution has the capacity for the new proposal. Following this stage a design was produced with close co-ordination with the College to ensure the various specialist equipment to each area was catered for. 

Due to the different nature of activities in the rooms, the lighting design had to achieve the required environmental conditions for each area whilst minimising the different light source types to aid maintenance and keep energy efficiency as a high priority.
