£13 million building college campus opened in Leeds

September 2019

Leeds College of Building expanded their estates portfolio as they opened phase two of the South Bank Campus, a £13-million development.

Representatives from Leeds College of Building, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), Clugston Construction, and the Lord Mayor of Leeds attended the opening ceremony.

Leeds College of Building, the UK’s only specialist further education construction college, received an £11.9m investment from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), delivered in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal - a £1 billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.

Designed by Fuse, this phase-two development sits in a prominent position alongside the existing College building (also designed by Fuse and opened in 2015 between Cudbear Street and Black Bull Street).  The new state-of-the-art 5,200 square metre, four-storey building boasts a range of classrooms, workshops and a dynamic central atrium, which acts as the building’s main communal and circulation space.

A large proportion of Leeds College of Building’s 6,000 students will attend the two South Bank sites, with the remainder using the College’s North Street Campus (which benefitted from £1-million of the funding for refurbishment and the relocation of one of the largest Painting & Decorating training facilities of its kind in the UK).
