The three storey steel frame building wrapped with a lightweight steel frame system and finished in a combination of masonry, cladding and aluminium windows and curtain walling provides much needed classroom expansion space for the TV and digital media departments.

The new teaching facility includes a cutting-edge TV studio, a fully-equipped photo studio, as well as dedicated graphics, art, and media rooms also accommodating additional classrooms together with dedicated open learning areas, staff rooms, and offices.
