Power is on at Innovation Centre.

Young engineers and scientists of the future welcomed guests at the official opening of Marlborough College’s Innovation Centre – including Brymor Construction Chairman Stephen Morton and Managing Director Mark Dyer.

The pupils gave demonstrations and explained how they have been harnessing the power of technology at the state-of-the-art complex.

Brymor Construction designed, built and fitted out the new centre at Marlborough College, which is the country’s largest co-educational full boarding school.

Stephen said: “I was impressed by the pupils and the practical involvement on the day.

“This truly is a fantastic facility and Brymor are proud to be the construction company that delivered this scheme”

The centre was officially opened by Giles Henderson, the school’s Chair of Council and Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of Arçelik, the holding company for Beko, who are partners for the centre.

Others in attendance included staff, donors, pupils and bursar Andrew Hart.

With more than 1,000 sq m of teaching and exhibition space, the cutting-edge centre aims to inspire the next generation and place the school in the vanguard of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

It was sustainably designed to be thermally efficient, have reduced water consumption and draw on solar power from photovoltaic panels.

Brymor has a long track record in the state and independent education sector ranging across primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and SEN facilities.
