Northgate Brewery, Newark-On-Trent

After a boom in the brewing industry within Newark throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the industry has now all but vanished from the town. The only remains are a few surviving buildings used as offices and apartments with a largely forgotten past.

The project aims to revive and celebrate the industry within Newark-On-Trent by developing the former Warwick & Richards Brewery site into a HUB for both the production and consumption of beer. The project contains a mass production brewery of regional significance along with 5 smaller microbrewery units making use of traditional brewing towers to support start-up and independent brewers around the town.

The development will also contain a museum and taprooms to exhibit the beer that is produced on site. The abandoned malthouse that sits within the site has also been re-established as an indoor public park and performance space to allow the building to finally be used and celebrated after years of decay.

L7 Architect Degree Apprenticeship

L7 Architect Degree Apprenticeship

The L7 Architect Degree Apprenticeship is an integrated apprenticeship, which incorporates a programme of academic and workplace learning and assessment with an End-Point Assessment (EPA) to test the knowledge, skills and behaviours detailed in the Architect Apprenticeship Standard. The first three years of the Architect Apprenticeship lead to the award of Master of Architecture (MArch) Architecture in Practice, in which you will: develop design and communication skills; extend your knowledge of theoretical, socio-economic, historic and cultural factors affecting architectural design; advance your appreciation of technology and construction methods; and develop knowledge of management, practice, and law. The final year of the Architect Apprenticeship (leading to a PGDip AP award) will require you to address the challenging and rapidly evolving world of architectural design and practice, and to examine self-critically how they can most effectively contribute ‘value’ (in numerous senses of the word) to the built environment.

The Architect Apprenticeship has been designed to meet professional, institutional, and academic requirements, aiming to meet the expectations both of our two PSRB organisations (ARB and RIBA) and of the local and regional employers from whom we seek to attract apprentices. The University is currently seeking ARB prescription for the programme, and once that is achieved, we will for the RIBA’s validation too.
