Construction milestone for new Bridlington campus
28th June 2009 2:07pm - Return to press releases
East Riding College's new £17m Bridlington campus has passed a key construction milestone as students look forward to its September opening.
The striking building is now watertight, meaning all the roofs, windows and doors are in place, with only weeks to go before the College takes possession of it.
Contractors Wates are busy putting the finishing touches to the building, with plastering, painting and even carpeting underway in some areas.
College staff will move from the existing buildings - next to the new site, in St Mary\'s Walk - in August.
A series of public open days will be held in the second half of August to all residents and prospective students to look around the state-of-the-art interior.
Richard Sellick, project manager for the College, said: \"This is an exciting time for the College and students and staff are really looking forward to moving across to the new campus.
\"We are looking forward to showing off this fantastic new building to members of the public and prospective students at our open days in August.\"
The new campus is being built on the grassed area at the College\'s St Mary\'s Walk campus. The existing buildings will be taken down when the new ones are completed.
