Works to regenerate Ambleside campus took place over 18 months and included £4m worth of refurbishment to seven buildings across Penrith, as well as new soft and hard landscaping. The works took place in a rural conservation area, and so regular meetings with the conservation officer and Local Planning authority were key to the success of this project. Central to the campus is the Barn Theatre. The existing mothballed building was completely refurbished with high quality materials including granite flooring, velfac windows, komfort partitioning and white oak furniture and wall cladding.
