GMI Construction has revealed it will work on two major multimillion-pound projects, including an innovative engineering centre for a Yorkshire College.
The property firm will undertake the design and build contracts for Kirklees College’s £7.5 million, 5,481 square metre learning facility off St Andrew’s Road in Huddersfield. Students will also be given an opportunity to engage with the design and build processes associated with the project
Kirklees College is expected to open the building in September 2012, with students able to use state-of-the-art equipment to hone their engineering and motor vehicle expertise.
Meanwhile, a separate deal will see the Leeds-based developer work on a £5m medical centre scheme in Headingley, Leeds.
The project includes the upper floors of St Michael’s Court building - next door to the Arndale Centre - being converted to be used for medical purposes.
GMI Construction Group managing director, Jarrod Best, said: “As a well established construction services company founded in Yorkshire, we are proud that we can play a significant part in the development of a new state-of-the-art campus for Kirklees College.
“The new facilities are combining extraordinary design features and the professional building services of the team with the dynamic and creative minds of the students - a real community project.”
