MCD won this project through a competitive tendering process being 1 of 5 contractors tendering for the works. Upon award of contract we took the design from RIBA 3 and worked with the client team and end users to fully understand the brief and develop a sequence and project execution plan in agreement with all stakeholders. The works required the refurbishment of classrooms, brickwork centre and sports facilities with some extensive upgrades to the M&E services including the installation of a heat recovery system to the sports hall and changing areas. All of the works were undertaken within live and fully functional college campuses which were in use by 1000 students between 8 am to 9pm daily.

Logistics, deliveries and programmes of noisy works were carefully planned avoiding quiet periods and exam timetables etc to minimise any disruption and ensure the safety of students and staff were never compromised.

East Sussex College Group were extremely pleased with MCD’s approach to this project and the level of collaboration shown to achieve a positive experience for all, for this reason MCD were the contractor of choice to work within other live campus’s within the ESC Group to deliver a further extensive decarbonisation project.
