In the world of education, we’ve been delighted to work again with our friends at Nescot College Surrey. We have been helping them prepare an application bid to fund a new Animal Care Unit (ACU).
Chawton Hill have an extensive history with Nescot (dating back to 2001). We have completed numerous projects with them over the years. These have included the development of an integrated learning hub for SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) students. We also supported the later construction of an extra annexe at the college.
Most recently, we have been working with Nescot to prepare a bid for the expansion of their existing animal care unit (ACU). As part of our initial project management support for this scheme, we have assisted in several elements. These included preparing budget cost estimates, cash flow forecasts, project programme, and provisional design and layout of the site. If funding is successful, we look forward to supporting the team at Nescot in the administration and management of their next project.
All land-based courses at Nescot take place in purpose-built facilities around the main campus building. Including the Animal Care Centre, more than half of the College’s space is dedicated to supporting student studies. The college is home to a range of exotic, agricultural and domestic animals.
The intention is for a further modular unit to be built to accommodate more students. It will also allow a wider range of vocational courses in animal husbandry. The proposal includes two large classrooms, office space, cleaning facilities and a nocturnal animal room. We wish the team at Nescot every success. And we look forward to working with them on the next stage of their project. For a little more detail on the college’s animal studies department, take a look at this link.
We wish Nescot every success. Should you need any assistance with preparing funding bids and support in advance of a major school, college or education project, get in touch today.
