College automotive centre driven with steel

Posted on by in News

Work is underway on the steel-framed £8.1M City of Wolverhampton College Advanced Technology and Automotive Centre, which forms part of the City Learning Quarter.

Working on behalf of main contractor Speller Metcalfe, Adstone Construction has fabricated, supplied and erected 140t of steelwork for the project.

Due to be completed in July 2024, the centre will secure hundreds of jobs in the local economy and create learning opportunities for thousands of students, specialising in engineering and automotive studies.

The building will have facilities for new electric, hybrid and traditional vehicles, as well as fabrication, manufacturing, welding, CAD and robotics.

City of Wolverhampton Council Leader, Councillor Stephen Simkins, said: “The City Learning Quarter remains a key priority for the city, and it is great to see the progress being made with construction of the Centre.

“We are working hard with City of Wolverhampton College to ensure we not only deliver a vibrant education hub where we improve the city’s learning, apprenticeship and employment offers, but also that we retain our best talent, rather than losing people to different parts of the region.”
