The new Campus for Skelmersdale & Ormskirk College forms 12,000m2 of highly specialised facilities from performance studios and creative arts suites to teaching laboratories and provides a state of the art home for over 4,000 students and staff.

The facility is utilised by the community as well as the students and staff providing a place where people can invest “Social Capital” in their town.

Whilst working with RMJM, Nathan undertook detailed consultations with the local authority and wider masterplanning team to develop proposals which will eventually integrate the college within a regenerated town centre. 

Through consultation, Nathan undertook a detailed analysis of the town centre regeneration proposals, design parameters and conceptual approach to RMJM's winning scheme.

The building establishes a landmark feature, at the end of the proposed new high street, it also defines a proposed new public space, street edge and mediates between urban and natural landscape environments.
