The recently completed Beverley Campus for East Riding College has been shortlisted for the Committed to Construction in Humber and West Yorkshire Awards 2016.
The £14m new-build, which was handed over last September, has received an extremely positive reception by staff, students and the wider public too. Education is central to generation of positive cultural, social and environmental benefits for the community but the Campus goes even further by integrating with the Town’s new Flemingate Shopping Centre as part of a major, mixed-use regeneration by developers the Wykeland Group.
Mr Dominic Gibbons, Managing Director of the Wykeland Group, commented:
"The new East Riding College campus is a key part of the Flemingate Development, highly visible and promoting education for all in Beverley. Part of our focus for the centre has been to raise awareness of Beverley as a whole; the new campus is a valuable interface between students and the wider community, promoting a thriving educational and cultural environment in Beverley.”

John Doris, Vice Principal, Finance and Resources for East Riding College, said: “We are delighted that our new Beverley campus has been shortlisted. The design is stunning and fully sympathetic to its location facing the historic Beverley Minster. The College can now truly claim to be at the heart of its community.”
Our primary objective on any project is always client and end-user satisfaction, but it’s also very rewarding when our buildings are recognised by awards. The Beverley Campus has been shortlisted in two categories of the RICS Awards and received a shortlisting for the Civic Trust Awards too.
