Prospects Learning Foundation

Centre of Excellence for Building Services

Our sixth skills training college for Prospects Learning Foundation opened in September 2012. The 3600m² centre contains skills training space for plumbing and electrical as well as being the first centre in the country for heating, ventilation and refrigeration training. The project completes Prospects Basildon Construction Campus and provides students with a 150 seat restaurant, learning resource centre and flexible break-out study space.

With an emphasis on the environment the design has a holistic approach using passive systems to utilise natural daylight as much as possible with light-wells and reflective plains to ensure this extends deep into the floor plans. Natural ventilation systems make use of newly developed phase change material technology to cool the building and manage CO2 levels in teaching spaces. The centre has also been awarded Breeam 'Very Good' standard for sustainable design and construction.
