UTC Reading students win sustainability competition set by industry experts

A team of UTC Reading KS4 students have won this year’s Power Station Redesign competition, in partnership with MyKindaFuture, Kier and The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).   

Students were set a challenge to work in teams and create a proposal for the repurposing and redevelopment of a UK decommissioned power station. 

The industry experts were looking for exciting ideas for flexible spaces that serve multiple functions, and that will ensure these sites still have a positive impact on the economy and culture in years to come.  

The development idea had to be sustainable and had to also consider the environmental, social and economic issues affecting the station’s local community. 

We’re delighted to announce that the UTC Reading Group One team have won the competition! Congratulations to Annabel Richardson and Daisy Dunn (who have now completed their studies with UTC Reading) and current students, Franz Casuga, Nicola Harrison and William Larkin.  

All student participants will be receiving a prize and the winners prizes are soon to be announced... 

We would like to thank MyKindaFuture, Kier and CIOB for running this innovative competition, giving students a fantastic opportunity to work on real-world projects.
