Breaking ground on Coffey Architects’ Digi-Tech Factory


The Construction Index has covered the start on site of our Digi-Tech Factory for City College Norwich. This teaching and learning space is designed to feel more like a professional environment than a classroom, positioning digital technologies as a contemporary industry in East England and Norwich City College as a leader in the field. The building includes a three-storeys with a sawtooth roofline, wrapped in a perforated screen façade to create a lucent learning environment.

Main contractor RG Carter has broken ground on the construction of City College Norwich’s new £9.1m Digi-Tech Factory.

The four-story building, designed by Coffey Architects, features a sawtooth roof line, a façade wrapped in a bespoke perforated mesh and a large canopy entrance space.

Built on City College Norwich’s Ipswich Road campus, it will bring together the college’s digital skills courses into a single, purpose-built space, allowing for expansion of student numbers.
