Automotive Workshop – Broadstairs College

Refurbishment works have begun on an automotive workshop in need of repair following a fire to one area. Having completed the demolition and enabling works package in the Summer of 2023, Abbott have now started the refurbishment of the workshop to allow the college to make full use of the facility.

New designs have been agreed for the building, with significant upgrades to the existing structure such as the roof type and new doorways.

Phase one of the works focuses on the damaged section of the building; a new roof will be installed, heightening the building by roughly 1m to allow for increased space to lift the vehicles, window fittings and better light. The undamaged half of the building will continue to be in operation during phase one, something the team are having to continuously manage to ensure the safety of staff and students, as well as keeping disruptions to a minimum.

On completion of phase one, the college will move over their operations into the newly restored section whilst upgrades are made to the rest of the building, bringing a fully refurbished and unique facility to the students of Broadstairs College.
