Stoke 6th  Form Centre

Higher Education

Approved Design were excited to be involved with the dynamic Stoke 6th Form Centre, delivered to the client by Broadway Maylan Architecture and Miller Construction on programme in 2010. The accommodation provides a vibrant student hub and an environment that promotes learning.

Internally a major design feature is the Bamboo Plants which grow within the atrium up to the 2nd Floor Level – fire tests to the bamboo plants were required due to their location. To allow the open flowing nature of the building to be adopted the fire compartments were increased in size to the teams satisfaction. As compensation for this, a smoke control system was incorporated utilising roof vent outlets to enhance the open spacious feel throughout the college.
