Contractor appointed for Middleton College expansion
Caddick Construction has secured an £8.1M project to deliver a 1,393m2 extension, alongside the refurbishment of the Henry West Building, Technology Centre and Annex at Hopwood Hall’s Middleton Campus in Manchester.
The project is set to expand Hopwood Hall College and University Centre’s delivery of T-Level qualifications, which provide a two-year technical qualification for 16 to 19-year olds.
The College was one of the first to be approved by the Department for Education to deliver the T-Levels, which provide a variety of classroom-based learning with specialist teaching expertise alongside industry work placements.
Lewis Crichton, Head of Facilities and Risk Management at Hopwood Hall College and University Centre, said: “Hopwood Hall College has an extensive and wide array of facilities, supporting a host of curriculum areas. The targeted investment into the College’s Technology Centre will expand on this offering by introducing a new Advanced Manufacturing Centre, along with expansion of current facilities to meet demand in other construction and engineering disciplines.”
The Caddick Construction team is set to complete the work in spring 2023.
