The new £37m Quarry Hill Campus development for Leeds City College is in the heart of Leeds vibrant and diverse cultural quarter.
The 15,500m2 development is part funded by the Local Enterprise Partnership and will revolutionise the college’s Creative & Digital Arts and Health & Social Care provisions and house expansion for Leeds College of Music, part of Leeds City College Group. The new development will reinforce the college’s position as a leading authority in further education across the city.
On a challenging and compact site, the new 9-storey development, neighbouring the West Yorkshire Playhouse, includes a performance studio, specialist music recording facilities, dance & rehearsal spaces, TV studio & editing facilities, lecture theatres, digital animation and art facilities.
‘we have worked closely with Leeds City College designing an innovative campus that will provide students with a contemporary learning environment, it’s been a really rewarding project for all our team involved and we look forward to this next exciting stage of the project’.
The contract awarded to Wates will complete by summer 2019.
