Unlocking Potential – Calderdale College Multi-Million Pound Refurbishment

Calderdale College is currently undertaking a multi-million pound building programme to transform three floors of the main campus into state-of-the-art learning facilities.

Co-funded by the College and the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership this exciting development will allow the College to deliver new courses to meet local skills and employment needs.

G Floor will be transformed into a Digital Skills and Business Enterprise Centre to deliver new courses in Games Design, Video Editing, Visual Effects and Computer Sciences.

E Floor will become a new Health Industries Learning and Training Facility offering courses in Dentistry, Pharmacy, Health and Social Care and Childcare.

The final stage  of the building programme will see the creation of a state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centre housing the latest digital technology and print resources that are essential for learning and employability in the 21st Century.

Unlocking Potential Project Update - April 2016

Work has continued over the Easter break with the refurbishment programme. The windows in Hair and Beauty, Executive Offices and Refectory as well as the windows up to E&F Floor classrooms have already been replaced. Work has continued in the LRC and along B Floor Corridor where the new pipework leading to the LRC has now been boxed in.


The concrete beam above the old stage (Proscenium Arch) is now being partially removed to allow for sufficient headroom on the new mezzanine floor, this will continue as planned. The raised floor is almost complete however technical issues regarding the Arch will mean a delay in the completion of the LRC facility.


The windows on the first elevation on Francis St are now complete and the Mast Climber has been taken down. This will be re-erected on the gable end facing the PWC car park to enable the windows to be replaced in the rooms on that elevation.


Yet more scaffolding is being erected to the rear of the PWC in readiness for the window replacements at the rear, a Mast Climber will also be erected giving access to the main part of the rear elevation.

G Floor

Demolition works are continuing on G Floor and the installation of pipework and cabling containment has also progressed. The contractors have transported the materials up to G Floor to commence the erection of the new walls for the new teaching area layouts.

Car Parking PWC Car Park

With effect from 4th April the contractors have taken a further 30 spaces in the PWC car park to supplement the storage of the new window frames and glazing panels.
