Osborne Appointed Preferred Bidder for £14M London Campus
Osborne is set to create a lasting legacy in Colindale, North London, as it becomes preferred bidder for a £14 million contract to build a new college campus.
The family-owned contractor will deliver the impressive five-storey New Colindale Campus for Barnet and Southgate College, which includes a construction technology school, training hair salon and public library.
The College are looking for a striking building to further enable their vision and Osborne’s appointment comes on the back of a Stirling Prize Shortlisting for the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre at the London School of Economics. They will be working alongside the College Team lead by AECOM to maximise the opportunities that this new development offers; including investments in vocational training, work experience and the development of employment skills to support Barnet and Southgate students.
The new building forms part of an ultimate £550 million urban master plan to regenerate the wider Grahame Park area, and further plans are in place to support the local community with apprenticeships and volunteering.
John Craig Director for Osborne’s Education sector: “We’re delighted to be preferred bidder, especially in the face of some strong competition. New Colindale presents a great opportunity, not only to deliver a striking built asset for the College, but to enable local regeneration and establish a legacy of which everyone can be truly proud.”
