STUDENTS INTERESTED IN ARCHITECTURE GAIN INSIGHT INTO DESIGN OF CATTERICK’S NEW INTEGRATED CARE CAMPUS
We are honoured to have been invited to partner with Tilbury Douglas, the company who are project managing the new Integrated Care Campus which is being built at Catterick Garrison.
Tilbury Douglas will be working with us on a number of careers initiatives and events. The first of these was the recent public engagement meeting, where we were invited to take a group of students to look at the initial designs for the campus.
Ms Mannion, our Careers Leader attended with three students from Year 12 who are considering careers in architecture – Jack Denton, Ethan Potts and Arianna Tutora.
The students met the architects who designed the campus and discussed the design briefs and asked questions. They also talked to Mark Hetherington from BDP. Architects. They posed questions about the site, the design and build, the landscaping features, materials, and the public consultation process. Mark also gave an insight into degrees in architecture and how to develop a portfolio.
Ms Mannion said: “This has been a great opportunity for our students to have an insight into architecture and in particular the consultation process which is required for such a large building project. This experience will help students to build up evidence for their personal statements and portfolios for university. We are very grateful to have been included. Our students were very impressive and were confident in asking many questions to the lead architect.
The Catterick Integrated Care Campus (CICC) is a joint venture between the NHS and MOD, and it will deliver a range of services in one building; and the whole population will have access to primary healthcare together, regardless of whether they wear a uniform or not. It will see the creation of a health and wellbeing hub that will serve the whole of Richmondshire and will offer the most up-to- date modern practices to help keep people well.
