College consolidates on Longbridge campus

27 July 2011

Bournville College’s £66m new campus in Longbridge will consolidate the FE college’s existing three campuses to serve 15,000 students. It will span more than four acres and become a stepping stone towards the further regeneration of Longbridge after the collapse of MG-Rover in 2005.

Harrow Green has been appointed to manage the move to the new location over the summer months, so that the College can be up and running in September. Planning, of course, has already begun in the first phase of a project that will see the transfer and relocation of documentation, teaching resources and more to Longbridge.

“This is a major consolidation programme, one we are very proud to be associated with,” said Simon Compton, Harrow Green’s relocation consultant for the project. “We are working with staff across the college to project manage the move including all the material and resources needed for continuity in the new premises.”

Bournville’s new location, modern spacious premises and conference centre will enable the College to introduce new courses such as motor vehicle maintenance as well as featuring excellent training facilities for hairdressing, beauty, catering, construction and sport.
