Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (MET) draws on 150 years of heritage, history and experience, offering a range of qualifications, degrees, courses, and apprenticeships to individuals.

A £21 million college extension has recently been completed to equip students from Brighton with vital digital and creative skills. The sensitively-designed extension has been constructed on the former car park, creating a welcoming new ‘shop front’ for the College set within a large public space.

The College stated “The 3,000m2 extension to the existing tower block will become an invaluable training facility for young people and those looking to retrain”

Caroline Lucas MP, also said, “These new and refurbished buildings will create cutting-edge teaching facilities located in the heart of Brighton’s creative, digital and IT cluster.”

AG worked closely with main contractor Willmott Dixon and sub-contractor Stevens Construction delivering Plaza Paving (Salt, Pepper & Lakrids) to the redevelopment. Plaza paving was the ideal choice for the college as it offers an aesthetically pleasing creative innovative hard landscaping design whilst providing durable and hardwearing properties.

“We at AG have invested significantly in modern ‘green’ technology and are constantly working at and committed to keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible. I’m sure this was also an important factor in deciding which product to use for this development.”
