ADP and Eric Wright Win New Project

ADP has been selected, with Eric Wright Construction and Cundalls,  to deliver the new Energy Coast University Technical College (ECUTC). The project was won following a competitive ITT process. 

University Technical Colleges (UTC) bring together local universities, colleges of further education, and industry partners to provide specialist education for 14-19 year olds. The partners of the ECUTC, which is located in West Cumbria, are; Britain’s Energy Coast Campus, University of Cumbria, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Lakes College West Cumbria and Genll Training.

The new education facility will include training workshops and conference facilities. ADP’s concept was to keep the building simple and distinct, with functionality and adaptability at the forefront of the design. 

Joe Morgan, ADP’s Manchester partner said ‘We are delighted to be working with Eric Wright Construction and Cundalls. A truly collaborative team approach has resulted in a thoroughly considered and cohesive project we are extremely proud of and look forward to delivering.’ 

The new college is due to open in September 2014. 

This is the second UTC ADP has been commissioned to design. In association with Kier, UTC Reading is currently on site and will open in September 2013. The college will specialise in computer science and engineering, with large technology companies partnering the scheme.
