Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) is one of London’s most successful further education colleges providing education and training to 16-18-year olds and adults from across Richmond, London and Surrey.

ISG is constructing a new five-storey, concrete framed teaching block, extending to around 161,000 sq ft. The striking building will become the college’s focal point for technology enabled teaching courses, and the facilities will include TV studios, a 3D prototyping fabrication laboratory and digital golf studio.

This is the first phase of a wider £80million masterplan to transform the facilities at the London Higher Education institution.

On arrival, all visitors will receive an induction before a presentation on the history of the project. Visitors will then be provided with PPE and escorted around the project by a member of the construction team where they can see first-hand the works that are taking place behind the scenes.

The project is currently completing the construction of the reinforced concrete superstructure; these works are ongoing up to roof slab level. The external envelop works have commenced and initial mechanical and electrical installation works have also commenced on the lower floors.
