Work on the final phase of the redevelopment at Central Sussex College’s Sixth Form Haywards Heath campus is now well underway, despite the best efforts of one campus resident – Plecotus Auritus – AKA a brown long-eared bat!
Mansell Project Manager, Kevin Spreyer explained: “Mansell has been working closely with College staff to ensure the building work is completed on time, despite the setback. People may find it staggering that one bat can effectively cause a 70 tonne piece of machinery to grind to a halt, but it is important they are protected.”
This final phase of the £30 million campus redevelopment is due for completion during the 2012/13 academic year. New facilities will include science laboratories, classrooms, a music suite, learning resource and IT centre, four court sports hall and a new reception area.
