York College Motor Vehicle Extension
Bowman Riley has provided multi-discipline consultancy services to extend York College’s specialist motor vehicle and engineering campus. The project has now started on site due for completion this summer in time for the new academic year in September 2020.
The £600,000 project will create a state-of-the-art workshop facility for mechanics, engineers and vehicle technicians of the future to train in a modern, purpose-built environment. This building will further enhance the College’s ability to provide a wide range of vocational courses in motor vehicle maintenance and engineering.
Providing architecture, project management, building surveying, contract administration and the role of principal designer in-house, we are working alongside structural, mechanical and electrical engineers and the contractor.
Ian Dawkes, the facilities coordinator from York College, said: “This new facility, and the additional workshop space it will provide, will further improve the learning environment for students from across York and North Yorkshire and there’s no doubt it will be a valuable addition to our offering at York College.”
York College opened its doors in 2007 to more than 13,000 students on the south-western gateway to the City and at the time, the landmark £60 million campus was one of the largest building projects of its kind in the country.
Bowman Riley has been working with York College since 2018 when the company successfully bid to provide multi-discipline consultancy services under a framework agreement.
