Centre engineers a bright future
It has been a real local effort, with Warwick law firm Wright Hassall, Coventry-based property advisors Bromwich Hardy and North Rae Sanders, quantity surveyors Starkey Button and Co, from Leamington, involved along with Hitchman Stone Architects, of Warwick, designed the 18,500ft complex, and Greenways and Partners, of Leamington, were mechanical and electrical engineers.
Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and the Warwickshire College Group are jointly funding the project through the government’s Growth Deal.
It will train an extra 285 advanced and 253 higher apprenticeships in the manufacturing, mechanical, electronic, automotive and product creation sectors.
Des Wynne, director of AC Lloyd, said: “It is really rewarding to be working on a project that we know will benefit the area and its economy for years to come.
“We developed Warwick Trident College’s main campus building some ten years ago, so it has been a privilege to be involved in this latest expansion.”
The first students will start working in the building later in the month.
The college has also been awarded an Order of Distinction Award at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
