Waldeck chosen to redevelop Lincoln College building

A local construction company has been contracted to redevelop the Monks Building at Lincoln College, in a multi-million project.

Multi-disciplinary consultancy Waldeck, who offer a range of design and engineering services, were appointed to work on the £4.5 million redevelopment of the college building.

The Monks Road building will be refurbished and given an extension, while a fully glazed, double height atrium will be constructed and used as a new student entrance.

As well as the refurbishment, a new Learning Resource Centre will be built on the newly extended second floor.

Waldeck Engineering Manager Andrew Foottit said: “Waldeck have a lot of experience in the education sector, having completed projects for Huntingtower Community Primary Academy, North Lyndsey College, The Deepings School and Bishop Burton College.

“We first started working with Lincoln College in March 2012 and we’re pleased to be continuing our relationship with them.”

Waldeck will also work on the remodelling of the former police station and magistrates court on Appelton Gate in Newark, becoming Lincoln College’s new piano school.

Construction of the site will begin September this year looking to be completed by the start of the academic year in September 2014.
