Accrington College

Visitor Economy Centre

A new mixed curriculum hospitality faculty built on the college campus. Working with multiple college stakeholders, we designed a building that provided a new face to the college and also a meeting point with the public. Four fully-functioning commercial kitchens service a restaurant which serves the college and the public.

Build Cost: £4.5m
Sector: Education

ARC VEC was a very challenging project not only from a design and technical perspective but also delivering the completed project to the clients expectations. Union Architecture performed admirably. The initial design they produced was very close to what has been built – an example of how they absorbed the clients brief and produced a superb design. We look forward to collaborating on more projects together in the future.
