Build work on Nottingham College’s new City Hub campus, in the heart of the city centre, is now complete.
Builders and main contractors, Wates formally handed over the building to the College last week and work now begins to relocate more than 2000 students and 200 staff into the building.
The handover marks over two years of build works, and many more on planning, to re-purpose the former brownfield site next to the Broadmarsh.
The new college building is situated within the former Narrowmarsh site and complements the surrounding buildings and views of the Lace Market escarpment.
The new £58.5m state-of-the-art City Hub will provide fantastic new learning and community facilities and future employment opportunities to thousands.
With the new building fully functional and operational by the New Year, the College will close its Clarendon and Maid Marian Way campuses.
Central to its estates vision the completion of the City Hub now ensures the College occupies modern, fit-for-purpose, and expansive campuses at key locations across the City, including its 2015 redeveloped Basford Hall, its iconic Highfields campus within the Nottingham Science Park and its renowned High Pavement sixth form campus, on the edge of the city centre.
Current college students from Science, Early Years, Catering and Hospitality, Business, IT and Computing, Media, Performing Arts, Travel and Tourism, and more will now begin the process of moving which will be managed slowly and in stages starting during this half term and stretching through until Christmas.
