Caddick Construction has been appointed to build a new 24,000sq ft extension at Loreto Sixth Form College in Hulme in Manchester.

Work is now underway on the new three-storey campus building, which is being constructed in Moss Road West adjacent to the existing campus in Chichester Road South.

Planning permission for the expansion was secured in September last year, following which Caddick Construction undertook a series of preparatory works under a pre-construction services agreement.

With an emphasis on environmental sustainability and minimising operational carbon, the new building will have 39.8% of its electrical demands met by renewable sources.

Sustainable features include air source heat pumps, solar panels, passive ventilation systems, and night cooling.

Pupils and teachers will also be encouraged to use sustainable forms of transport, with the introduction of EV charging and bike storage.

The new building will sit alongside the existing college, with additional facilities to enhance the learning environment and curriculum delivery, including include 20 classrooms, a lecture theatre with a seating capacity of 200, and a new study centre.

The work will also include partial refurbishment of existing buildings with new science labs, new catering facilities and a 110sq m outdoor canopied seating area.

A science garden and landscaped reflection spaces will also be created to maximise the use of green space.
