Planning application for Steel Fixing Platforms
10 February 2014
DKA have become one of the key partners for delivering Nuclear Skills Training in Sedgemoor. Supporting future nuclear expansion at Hinkley Point C, DKA have delivered three key buildings to date, with a fourth in development. A Planning Application has been submitted to expand the facilities at Cannington’s Construction Skills & Innovation Centre for the UK’s first bespoke Steel Fixing course in collaboration with EDF, BYLoR and Bridgwater College.
Steel fixing will be one of the largest Tier 1 contracts at Hinkley C, requiring a highly skilled workforce. Basing the centre at Cannington will ensure the greatest opportunities for local people, creating a legacy for future generations. Each training zone will teach trainees the skills for erecting steel cages for beams, suspended slabs, columns and wall types. DKA bring their expertise and experience to design the new training areas on large platforms in the landscape, screened by landscaped bunds
As Sedgemoor becomes a key location for Europe’s Nuclear Industry, with Bridgwater College as its training provider, DKA are proud to support them both with inspiring educational facilities.
