Animal Science Centre
For Kier Construction Ltd
Kingston Maurward College is located on the outskirts of Dorchester within the beautiful grounds of a historic Georgian stately house. The college provides a wide range of courses but is primarily concerned with Agricultural skills such as Equine studies, Horticulture and Animal Conservation.
This new facility will be for Animal Sciences where students can learn more about the welfare of local wildlife. The building contains several classrooms, a new ICT suite and specialist rooms for nocturnal animals, amphibians and even an aquatics room, allowing the students to be hands on. The new building also has a dog grooming training centre that will be open to the public.
The design incorporates a steel portal frame, structural deck and a composite walling system, clad with Siberian larch timber boarding and a large array of Solar panels on the roof.
