The project is being entirely funded by the Department for Education, as one of 16 colleges to gain a share of the £1.5bn FE capital transformation fund.
Yeovil College campus will be redesigned and developed over the next four years.
BAM will submit a planning application next month, with the aim to start work within the next 12 months.
Graham Kindgon, Construction Director for BAM, said the project would deliver a net zero carbon in operation campus based on the Department for Education’s sustainability principles
“This means maximising natural light, using thermal mass to regulate internal temperatures, and integrating cross ventilation to give great air quality.
“Air source heat pumps will be used for heating and hot water, dimmable LED lighting supplements natural light, and reduced energy consumption measures.
“The buildings are designed to generate sufficient electricity throughout the year to meet their annual electrical demands.”
