After months of hard work Cornwall College Camborne has announced that the first phase of its multi-million pound redevelopment project to transform the campus has been completed.

As part of phase one, several buildings on the campus have been removed to make way for more green space, in order to encourage local wildlife and enhance the biodiversity of the area.

Internally, the development of the campus includes fully refurbished, state-of-the art classrooms which the college says provides a “modern and inspiring learning environment” for students.

John Evans, principal and chief executive of The Cornwall College Group, shared his excitement about the progress made so far, saying: “This is a proud moment for the Group.

"This multi-million-pound redevelopment not only enhances our educational facilities but also our commitment to sustainability and the environment.”

The redevelopment of the Camborne campus has been underway since the beginning of the year, with 92% of the material demolished being recycled and reused where possible.

Luke Bazeley, head of campus at Cornwall College Camborne, described the redevelopment project as “a significant milestone for our campus."

He added: “We look forward to welcoming our students to these state-of-the-art classrooms and continuing our journey of providing top-quality education and training in the region.”

Previous details revealed that the first stage of demolition was scheduled to involve the Avalon Corridor, Merlin, Scott and Avalon buildings, the lecture theatre and Harris building.

The second phase will see the Tamar Annexe Sharm and College Print buildings demolished.

Phase two of the redevelopment plan for Cornwall College Camborne will continue into 2024.

The full project includes upgrading classrooms, laboratories and workshops, improving technology, infrastructure, and enhancing accessibility and safety.

The work is being funded through the Department for Education's Further Education Capital Transformation Fund.

The campus has been given £12 million under the Department for Education’s funding to remove poor quality and redundant buildings.

This is in addition to around £40 million given for a full rebuild of Cornwall College’s St Austell campus.
