The firm will construct a new Centre for Employment and Independent Living for Students with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CEIL for SLDD) at the Basford campus, valued at £5.4 million. 

The company will also build a new Construction Skills Centre (CSC), also valued at £5.4 million. 

Both projects were procured via Pagabo’s Medium Works Framework. 

The CEIL for SLDD scheme is for a two-storey build with 13 classrooms, a teaching kitchen, dining area and ancillary spaces, as well as associated external works. 

When built, the CSC scheme will provide workshop and classroom training for construction skilled trades in the local area.  

“We’re delighted that our Medium Works Framework was used by Nottingham College to appoint a contractor for these key projects,” said Adam Brumfitt, regional delivery manager (Midlands), at Pagabo“Pagabo supported the college in understanding the procurement needs of the two projects and have delivered a successful outcome through the compliant appointment of G F Tomlinson.  

“The two new buildings that will be delivered on the college’s Basford campus are set to have a huge positive impact on the experience of students and staff.” 

Chris Flint, managing director of G F Tomlinson, added: “We’re delighted that these two pivotal educational schemes are moving ahead for Nottingham College, procured through the Pagabo National Framework for Medium Works.”
