Lambeth College

Thursday, 28th November 2013 Lambeth College

GRS have proved once again that when it comes to delivering a successful project location is not a problem!  

 

 

12th October we saw the official opening and preview of Lambeth College's new Learning Street in SW4. The Street includes retail outlets and micro-businesses, Hair and Beauty Salon, Spa, Training Kitchens, Restaurant and Theatre.

The capital’s service and leisure industries are a driving force behind regeneration on our high streets. Everywhere you look there are new health and fitness centres, gyms, hair and beauty salons, restaurants, bistros and bars.

The brand new and unique set of facilities, which received 5 million pounds investment from The European Social Fund (ESF) and The Skills Funding Agency (SFA), aim to simulate the real service and retail experience where learners get hands-on experience in running their own business and enterprise and deal with real clients and the general public.

As well as the high street experience at the Clapham Centre, the College has also invested in new modern, fully equipped Motor Vehicle Engineering workshops alongside the Motorcycle Maintenance workshops at the Vauxhall Centre.

 

The usual challenges of working within live environments required close co-ordination between the College, Lindums and GRS. The project length was 8 months and at its peak GRS had over 25 operatives and sub-contractors on site. This was by no means a unique project, GRS has had years of experience working on this type of project not only nationally but also internationally.
