Third GC House renovation project underway

10 October 2017

After a quiet summer while students enjoyed their holidays, we're back and excited to announce that work on GC House no.3, located on Elmbridge Road in Gloucester, started last week.

So far 15 students have helped to remove the kitchen, and all the wallpaper and floor coverings ready for the chimney's safe removal later.

One bedroom has had its five(!) layers of wallpaper removed and we are starting on the next smaller bedroom this week.

Our new intake of multi-skilled students are enjoying the variety of work available, which will help develop their skills both in and outside of college, with two groups wanting to 'claim a room' so they can work on it from start to finish.

The lathe and plaster ceiling upstairs will be the next big job on our latest renovation project.

All demolition and clearance should be completed before the Christmas break, ready for the installation of the new kitchen, ceiling, flooring and decoration to commence in 2018!

Should you be interested in supporting this project, are looking to add to your workforce or simply would like more information, please contact our project manager, Rachael Capener on 07909540437 or email
