cepezed designs new branch of graafschap college

cepezed will design the new branch of the Graafschap College in Doetinchem. On the site of the tennis hall on Sportpark Zuid, a new school building for circa 700 students of the departments Sports & Exercise and Peace & Safety will be realized by the ROC (Regional Education Centre).

Plans for a diversity of new construction were already announced in 2008. Since then, all other projects were realized, but for this building the school was still on the lookout for a suitable location. Eventually , this has been found  on the Sportpark Zuid; a year and a half ago, the ROC was able to acquire the tennis hall which will be demolished in April. Sportpark Zuid is the ideal location for Sports & Exercise due to the expected synergy with the local sports clubs and the new high end sports hall which was realized in 2014. Construction for the new building will commence in the summer of 2017 and the delivery is projected for 2018. The cost is estimated at about € 10 million.
