Bradford College – 6 Six Storey New Build
Adding to the regeneration of Bradford, the new multi-million pound campus will be ready to welcome learners in September, providing an innovative and technology rich learning environment in the heart of the city. The eco-friendly campus design will have a light and airy feel and will be sympathetic to the large-scale mill and warehouse buildings that characterise parts of Bradford. The new campus, named after famous Bradford College alumnus and internationally acclaimed artist, David Hockney will transform the learner experience using new styles of learning, which will embrace cutting edge technologies.
Realistic work environments will be open to the public, with opportunities to showcase learning activity through open plan areas. Measuring 23,000 m ² in size, the new six-storey building will sweep up Great Horton Road and be built on the College’s existing city centre site (Westbrook Building) and on the site of the former Randall Well Building.
The David Hockney Building is the second phase of Bradford College’s Accommodation Strategy. The first phase involved the development of Trinity Green Campus in 2008, a state of the art building which houses the Engineering, Construction and Sport curriculum areas.
The College’s new build has replaced the Westbrook, McMillan and Appleton Buildings. The Westbrook Building will be demolished and the remaining buildings will either be sold or put to other use.
The College plans to retain Lister Building, Bolton Royd and Trinity Green Campus and the Old Building which will now house the Bradford College Film School. The College has planned a £2.8m refurbishment and extension of the Lister Building which will accommodate a library, café and exhibition area.
