Digital Skills Hub provides boost to Telford regeneration scheme
Willmott Dixon has started work on the £15.8M Telford Digital Skills & Enterprise Hub that will form a central element of the wider Telford Station Quarter regeneration scheme.
Willmott Dixon is working for Telford & Wrekin Council, in collaboration with educational partners Telford College and Harper Adams University, after being procured through the Pagabo framework.
The five-storey hub’s purpose is to provide a combined education and business offering, with shared spaces and start-up offices, as well as acting as a new base for Telford College and Harper Adams University.
When open for the new academic year in September 2024, the hub will accommodate 200 Telford College students aged 16 to 18, while Harper Adams University will offer a range of degrees, including Applied Data Science, Robotics, Automation & Mechatronics, Engineering Business Management, and Digital Manufacturing.
Station Quarter is a new residential-led, mixed-use regeneration project, which will deliver accessible and high-quality homes along with complementary education, hospitality and leisure uses to provide an active destination where people can live, learn, and relax.
