FINAL touches are being made to the new Collections House at Pershore College as part of a £5.8million redevelopment project.

The ongoing transformation of the horticultural college is beginning to take shape as the state-of-the-art glasshouse offering a science and technology centre, teaching rooms, project spaces and new reception area, nears completion.

The sustainable building will have a electronic management system to control ventilation, humidity, heating and lighting and a programme of plant production will be introduced for protecting and enabling the plants to flourish.

John Farmer, commercial manager at Pershore College said: “The new Collections House is going to be a unique asset for the college.

“It will provide our students with an innovative, technologically enhanced environment unrivalled in the further education sector and they will be involved in every aspect of managing it, which will give them invaluable experience.

“Over the summer we have been busy sourcing plants from around the country and Europe for the Collections House and when complete it’s going to be truly spectacular, something for everyone in Pershore to be proud of.”
