Part of the government’s National College initiative, this sister campus to the Doncaster Campus is a monument to the innovative design of Bond Bryan in creating a building that truly maximises the tight urban site space. Sandwiched between Birmingham’s dual carriageway ring-road and the Grand Union Canal, our design has made a successful sustainable response to this setting, developing positive pedestrian routes in this key regeneration area.
The centre delivers specialist training in digital technologies and civil engineering providing cutting edge learning technology environments. The external expression of the design takes inspiration from the Birmingham Campus’s core specialism of ‘Digital Technology’ with this motif being expressed through perforations and linearity within the building’s fabric, offering a unique Digital Reference.
Bond Bryan delivered this BREEAM ‘Excellent’ scheme for Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. The scheme’s design pays homage to Doncaster’s culturally significant contributions to the rail industry and railway heritage.
The David Hockney Building at Bradford College represents the flexibility needed for an FE provider to remain in touch and current with the ever-fluctuating methods of pedagogy.
