Dynamic environment for tech learning, Basildon
The brand new Digital Technologies campus in Basildon contains state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for courses aimed at both young people and adults.
The learning focus includes IT networking, app development, dames design and animation. The project is a partnership between Basildon Council, Homes England and South Essex College, with contractor Morgan Sindall delivering the three-storey building in the heart of Basildon town centre.
We were tasked with decorating all the internal aspects of the new tech centre using ICI paint. Though the majority of the spaces were finished in white, we also created various feature walls dotted around to make the space dynamic and stimulating. In addition, we created a darkroom where everything including the woodwork was completed in black, enabling photo development.
Facilitated by Homes England, the current South Essex College Basildon campus will be relocated, with the existing buildings being turned into 725 high-quality homes for the area. Meanwhile, the new Digital Technology campus will furnish the college with spaces better suited to today’s employment demands – providing courses that ensure graduates are equipped with the kind of skills needed to meet local and regional employment needs and industry demands. Working collaboratively with Morgan Sindall and the whole team onsite, we successfully created interiors with an aesthetic that matches the modern and elegant exterior.
