Northampton College, one of the largest general Further Education Colleges in the region, with approximately 10,000 students, opened its transformed Booth Lane campus in Septermber 2012. The redevelopment provides an iconic flagship that secures the long term future of the college.

 
Munro + Whitten developed the masterplan for the new campus landscape with Pick Everard Architects and Engineers in a controlled and considered manner. Our primary focus was on high the quality of design and sustainability. The design includes plazas, courts, parklands, a sensory garden, outdoor performance area and sports pitches. A new wetland habitat, also used as a teaching resource, forms part of the sustainable drainage system for the campus.
