Bird College is an independent performing arts college providing specialist vocational training in dance and musical theatre. The college was the first of its kind in the UK to offer a professional dance degree and delivers programmes accredited by the University of Greenwich and Trinity College London as well as offering ISTD dance teaching qualifications.
As winners of a RIBA architectural competition, Hoskins Architects were selected to design the new facilities at the single site campus covering an area of 6,200m² which included refurbishment of the existing inter-war school building. The project comprised of a new 250 seat performance and teaching space and 2,000m² of dance and music space including 12 dance studios, four acting studios, one academic room and nine singing rooms.
Harlequin supplied and installed 184m² of fully floating Harlequin Activity sprung floor with Harlequin Standfast top surface and a 125m² Harlequin Allegro cushioned vinyl floor.
