Royal visitor at Bradford College opening

HRH Prince Richard , The Duke of Gloucester, officially opened the Bond Bryan designed David Hockney Building at Bradford College yesterday.

He was given a tour of the building including its 3D printing facilities, hair, beauty and spa areas and multi-media equipment zones

The Duke said: “This is a splendid structure that seems to please everyone who comes here. I would like to congratulate all those who have played a role here. I also wish the best to those who grow their talents here. It’s a great pleasure for me to come to Bradford. Everyone I spoke to seems very happy on what they are doing with the building.”

Andy Welsh, chief executive officer of the Bradford College Group, also hailed the site, saying the facilities will let the college keep at the forefront of new technology.

He said: “The new building marks the future of Bradford College, and the innovative way our students will learn and develop during their time here. The David Hockney Building is significant not only for the college, but for Bradford as an entity, and on behalf of the college, I would like to say that we feel honoured to receive the Royal recognition for our hard work.”

Matt Hutton, Associate Director at Bond Bryan Architects and largely responsible for the design of the David Hockney Building, was there to celebrate the opening.
