Sunderland College has appointed BAM Construction to build its new £29 million vocational campus in the heart of Sunderland City Centre.
Work on the new 11,500 square metre campus will begin next month on the land opposite Park Lane bus station and upon completion the new state of the art building will accommodate up to 2,000 students and over 120 staff whose spending power will assist in the regeneration of the city centre.
The well-equipped new building will house vocational courses transferred from its Hylton Campus. These courses will include advanced engineering, manufacturing, construction trades, automotive trades, travel and tourism, catering and hospitality. The building will also incorporate hair, beauty and barbering facilities, a spa, a bakery, a travel agency and a restaurant all of which will be accessible to the public.
