Take a tour of our state-of-the-art-facilities at Bucks UTC

Our building was constructed and completed in 2013 at a cost £10 million. The facilities include the latest technology and equipment for students in both computing and building studies specialisms.

The ground floor of the building includes a beautiful reception and atrium and a large purpose built area for our building studies department. The building studies area itself consists of a main open, double-height area used for building work. There are electrical bays, plumbing bays, decorating bays to practice plastering, papering, tiling and painting, and there is a woodwork area, a machine room and the construction yard.

The first floor of the building brings you to our specialist computing labs. The rooms cater for all aspects of the Computing Industry and provide hardware, networking rooms, and a dummy server room. We’ve also got impressive Mac Suite for professional graphic production and many more PCs for the development of all aspects of computing knowledge. All computers are loaded with a full range of software applications, everything that an aspiring student would need.

Modern, large classrooms for core subjects, with a wide range of resources for developing curricular knowledge are assisted by a fully-equipped Science practical room. An outdoor roof terrace overlooking Aylesbury provides students with their own outdoor space.

In addition, the roof of our building is covered with solar panels which are connected to 3 inverters. Solar energy collected by the panels is converted into electricity and fed back into the national grid. The UTC gets credits for this energy which then ofsets our energy bills.
