A new multimedia creative arts base at City College Norwich passed a milestone yesterday, with a topping-out ceremony conducted by the principal.
The £5.7m building will house the college's creative arts students from September.
Principal Corrienne Peasgood, chief executive Dick Palmer and corporation chairman Matthew Colmer were given a tour of the building and helped to fasten flashing to the building's roof.
The new facility will include rehearsal spaces, TV and music studios and editing suites, and traditional fine art and design programmes on its three floors.
Mrs Peasgood said it would enhance City College Norwich's appeal as an option for artistic further education students.
