The official opening of Stroud College took place on Monday 2 July and in the line-up to greet HRH Princess Anne was Ben Ramsay, senior project manager at Moss. The state of the art college is now fully open to students, offering a range of courses from hairdressing to construction.

The ability of Moss to translate a concept into a functioning reality has resulted in the landmark structure of Stroud College. The three-storey building, which is unique in shape and configuration, is divided into four zones: a central rotunda, a curved teaching wing, an art wing with learning resources centre and a construction technology wing. One of the most significant challenges the team faced was to interweave the client’s fit-out requirements into shell construction and to do this at an early enough stage so that any modifications to the building fabric were avoided.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved for their handwork and enthusiasm.
