North Lincolnshire Council
Stem were appointed to design a state-of-the-art professional education facility for 14-19 year old students in the centre of Scunthorpe. North Lincolnshire Council emphasised careful consideration with the setting, massing and materials in the context of St Johns Church, which is a grade II* listed building in the centre of Scunthorpe.
Stem’s planning and design ensured the development of a sophisticated building project that frames Church Square. The range of materials selected creates a building with lasting economic value; they are robust, hard wearing and are low maintenance. Natural ventilation Chimneys and wind cowls feature on the East and West elevations, providing acoustically attenuated ventilation to the classrooms below. These Chimneys also act as a visual reference to the industrial areas beyond the site and Scunthorpe’s industrial heritage.
The project seamlessly enhances the Church Square area, creating a striking new educational asset for Scunthorpe, whilst setting a new standard for development within the area. It provides opportunities for young people to formulate academic opinion and engage with employers in modern, industry standard facilities.
