Wirral Metropolitan College
DBK has delivered employer’s agent and cost management services on this innovative project, which was dedicated to the building of a new college campus, situated on the waterfront, where the courses provided focus on ways to train local students in construction.
The new campus, dedicated to delivering training and education for construction and the built environment, also includes a skills and enterprise centre for local employers. The college’s employer service facility, that already supports over 1,000 businesses, will be based on this new campus, which, as a whole, has been developed to play a key part in the regeneration of the wider economy.
The design of the college is used as a learning tool for the students and, therefore, incorporates best practice from the industry. The project won RIBA’s 2016 Architecture Award.
In support of the aim to train students, this project was part funded by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).
RPS acquired DBK Partners Ltd in April 2016.
