Having not been to the UTC@harbourside site in Newhaven for about four months, it was great to see that the build is nearly finished. Parts of the original building have been left, and sit well alongside the industrial-looking concrete walls and columns. The views out to the surrounding town, harbour and countryside are stunning. This feels like it will be an inspiring place for learning.
An article about this project can be found on the Triple Pundit website here.
The old Marine and Carpenter’s Workshops in Newhaven Harbour have been empty for a long time. The buildings will now have a new lease of life. Renovation and rebuilding will transform this beautiful old building into a new University Technical College for 14-19-year-olds. UTC@Harbourside will specialise in marine and environmental engineering. The partners behind this new school have hired me to document the process of this renovation.
