Tottenham UTC nearing completion..

View from the main reception

It's been great watching the new Tottenham UTC nearing completion - a recent tour saw flooring being put down and infrastructure installations nearing completion.  I am pleased to have been involved throughout this project as Chair of the Design User Group and to see it nearing completion is a good feeling.

This UTC is being built inside an office block - whilst creating  range of significant limitations it has also ensured that learning spaces are large, (very large in some cases), light and airy allowing a wide range of innovative teaching and learning styles. The fab architects are 'Surface to Air' and contractors: Kier.

Sponsored by the Middlesex University Engineering Dept and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, its specialism is 'Technology and Science for Sport, Health and Engineering.    Other sponsors include; Festo, National Instruments, Fusion Lifestyle, Mindsets UK and the Tottenham Hotspure Foundation.

The Tottenham UTC will give students a grounding in the generic science skills required in industry, especially reflecting the rise of digital technology. Some of the science education will be delivered through the prisms of sport and health, ensuring students have the grounding required to work in associated fields such as Sports Science and Health Technologies.
