Eastbourne House is an existing Further Education learning centre providing over 100 local young people (aged 16 to 18) every year with access to training in: bricklaying; carpentry and joinery; painting and decorating; health & social care; hospitality & catering; and GCSEs in maths and English. With the right investment, the building could include new facilities to provide training in engineering, fabrication and welding and plumbing and heating engineering. The investment could modernise the existing 19th century building (and it’s surrounding workshops) by incorporating the latest green technologies (e.g. heat pumps, solar panels, LED lighting, multi-glazed windows etc.). It could be a model for how Victorian buildings can be brought into the twenty first century. It will provide a legacy for the young people of Sutton for decades to come, and will help them to learn new green technology and construction skills that will be in demand over the coming years.
