By: Armsons Barlow
DERBY, U.K. - March 15, 2024 - PRLog -- Leading Derby-based project managers, construction cost consultants and building surveyors Armsons Barlow are helping to bring an education facility at Derby College Group's campus to life.

Work has already begun on the new East Midlands Institute of Technology (EMIoT) building which is located at the college's Roundhouse Campus on Pride Park, expanding the current footprint by adding 1,100 square meters to house the new facilities.

The EMIoT facility, which will be net zero, will feature state-of-the art classrooms and collaborative workspaces, providing students with a hands-on and immersive learning experience. The cutting-edge technology will allow teaching to be carried out on-site or anywhere in the world.

It aims to address the increasing demand for skilled professionals and in-technology related fields and will equip students with future-ready skills necessary to meet the evolving demands of the workforce.

A groundbreaking ceremony, which took place recently at the college, marked the official start of construction on the state-of-the-art EMIoT facility.

Armsons Barlow are working alongside architects YMD Boon on the project, along with structural engineers JPL; M&E engineers, Hba Consulting; consultants Thornton Firkin and contractors Davlyn Construction.

Armsons Barlow will be working alongside the design team to provide project management services for the project.

The project is a partnership between Derby College Group, Loughborough University, Loughborough College and University of Derby, working with key industry players such as Rolls-Royce, Toyota Manufacturing UK, Alstom, and Bloc Digital.

The development is set to be completed and ready for opening in September 2024.

Commenting on the project, Sally Walters, director of Armsons Barlow, said:

"We are thrilled to be a part of this transformative project which will shape the future of education and training in the East Midlands.

"Our role as project managers underlines our commitment to ensuring that this groundbreaking initiative is successfully executed to bring together education, industry, and cutting-edge technology."

Over the past 50 years, Armsons Barlow has been involved in many award-winning schemes, including transforming the historic Roundhouse on Pride Park into a £51m engineering, technology, and construction campus for Derby College.

Other projects include Glasshouse College - Ruskin Mill Trust, housed in the former Royal Doulton factory in Stourbridge's Glass Quarter and 400 Hall, a state-of-the-art flexible performance theatre for Repton Hall School.

At the end of 2021, Armsons joined forces with chartered quantity surveyors and building surveyors Barlow & Associates to create Armsons Barlow and relocated from their long-standing home on Brick Row in Darley Abbey to Vernon Street in Derby.
