ISG Jackson has completed a £3.7 million project to carry out the first phase of the redevelopment of Linton Village College for Cambridgeshire County Council.

The contractor has built a new gymnasium and three-storey teaching accommodation block, alongside a single-storey drama studio on the site of the college’s former Information and Communication Technology (ICT) suite.

During the early stages of the project, archaeologists uncovered a wide range of artefacts from the Neolithic period and Roman era, with grave goods, human burials and a complete horse skeleton carefully recovered from the site before construction work could commence.

The new building was designed specifically to form a link between existing buildings within the college grounds, providing an extension to the sports centre, Technology Block and Music Block. New facilities include a food technology laboratory and offices on the ground floor, with seven science laboratories across the upper two levels, which also feature glazed observation galleries into the new gymnasium building.

Featuring two multi-purpose indoor courts, the gymnasium has large male and female changing areas and a storage area for games equipment. Externally, a covered walkway area leading to the college's commemorative memorial garden has also been created using pre-tensile fabric canopies, which project from the new building's façade.
