Phase Two of Cornwall College Camborne’s £12m redevelopment


Phase Two of Cornwall College Camborne’s £12m redevelopment

Cornwall College Camborne, part of The Cornwall College Group (TCCG), has announced significant changes to its campus as part of its transformative multi-million-pound redevelopment project.

The campus is buzzing with activity as trenches are being dug to facilitate the installation of cutting-edge plumbing and pipework, to meet the evolving needs of students and staff, ensuring a state-of-the-art environment to support excellence in education for generations to come.

A new, modern and easily maintainable energy centre will be created as a stand-alone control hub, to withstand the elements while seamlessly integrating into the campus environment.

For John Evans, principal and CE of TCCG, this is an exciting step towards a greener and more sustainable future for the College:

John said: “As the highest performing FE College in Cornwall, we want to continue enhancing the overall student experience. One of the notable features in the ongoing redevelopment is the creation of additional greenspace. Picnic benches and communal areas are being introduced to provide learners with inviting spaces for relaxation and socialisation between lessons.”

In alignment with the College’s commitment to sustainability, the ongoing redevelopment involves the planned removal of the Sharman building and the Tamar annex. This will not only create space for valuable landscape but also encourage wildlife to the area.

The iconic Tamar Tower is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, preserving its historic significance while ensuring it remains a symbol of the College’s legacy.

The overarching goal of this redevelopment remains to serve the community for generations to come and shape itself into a modern and desirable facility.
