September 2008 showcased the opening of the Trinity Green Campus - Phase One of the accommodation plan. Trinity Green Campus provides unsurpassed facilities, expertise and learning resources to meet the needs of the twenty-first century.
Phase 1 of the accommodation strategy building involved the redevelopment of the former McMillan Halls on Trinity Road into the innovatively designed Trinity Green Campus. The £20 million campus is home to Construction, Engineering and Sports curriculum areas and was completed in June 2008. TGC provides modern workshops; staff and student break-out areas; Wi-Fi technology; extensive learning resource areas; and student services. New sporting facilities include a 1000m² sports hall; sports and fitness laboratories; a fitness testing suite; a dedicated sport theory room; an aerobics and dance studio complete with fully sprung wooden floor; multi-use games area; 2 basketball courts designed to Sport England standard; three 5-a-side pitches; and a full size football pitch which is available for community use.
The college’s new sports facilities now feature in the London Organising Committee Pre-Games Training Camp Guide for the Olympics in 2012.
Bradford College currently occupies approximately 77,000m2 of
accommodation mainly spread over 11 buildings. These buildings cover a
diverse range of ages and architectural styles.
The vast majority of our buildings require considerable investment to improve either their physical condition and/or their functional suitability for the changing needs of the curriculum.
Therefore in 2004/05 the College identified its preferred estates strategy to significantly reduce both the number of sites and overall quantity of space that it occupies in a two phased development strategy.
The 2008 Trinity Green redevelopment formed the first phase of this development strategy. This state of the art building houses the Engineering, Construction and Sport curriculum.
2008/9 saw the creation of a £120m scheme which was to be funded by the LSC Capital Programme. Unfortunately, after a lot of work on the plans the LSC folded and the scheme was cancelled.
Since then, the college has reconsidered the options open to us, and concluded that a significant new build still remained the optimum solution. Work in underway to bring this new vision to life. This new campus will revolutionise the College’s existing estate, enabling the College to not only reduce the number of buildings and sites from which it operates, but also considerably improve its space efficiency.
