Located seven miles west of Norwich there lies Easton College. Recently having undergone a £1million redevelopment, the facilities at the college are to be expanded for the 2013 academic year.
The expansion will see the build of a new state of the art Animal Care Centre which will contain a range of small animal, exotics and aquatics rooms. The redevelopment will complement the existing purpose built facilities, which include a dog-grooming parlour, kennels, hydrotherapy and veterinary suites, an isolation area, prep room and lecture rooms.
The investment reflects the growing professionalism needed to work within the Animal Management sector.
The main focus of the college generally is on vocational courses with qualifications such as First and National Diplomas, as well as Foundation Degrees being offered. Full time courses are offered in areas from construction and engineering to animal management and floristry.
Speaking about the college, Principal David Lawrence OBE said:
“At Easton we are all focused on helping you gain the knowledge and skills to build a successful career in one of the industries we serve. We also work hard to ensure you have an enjoyable time; we provide you with high levels of support and provide you with some of the best facilities available.”
The main contractors on the redevelopment at Easton College were RG Carter- the company has historic ties with the Norfolk area having provided quality craftsmanship since the 1920’s.
Founded in 1974, Burghwood Landscapes is a family run business which is widely considered one of the most reliable landscaping contractors in Norwich.
The company is approved by a number of local government organisations including the NCC (Norfolk County Council) & Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
The staff at Burghwood are all trained to the highest standards and carry CSCS cards. Pride and execution of a project is how the company has ensured such steady growth- with pricing competitive and customer support at the forefront.
Most recently Burghwood did the fencing work on the small animal enclosures on the Easton College development.
