Henry Boot Construction recently attended the grand opening of Barnsley College’s Construction Centre at Barnsley College’s Honeywell campus.  The new £10.8 million building provides new state of the art facilities for study in a range of construction trades including brickwork, wall and floor tiling, plumbing, plastering, joinery, painting and decorating and professional studies to support students in the South Yorkshire area.

The centre houses innovative and inspiring work areas with industry lead equipment, providing a high quality learning experience for students.  Facilities comprise of new workshops, classrooms and machinery incorporating a comprehensive IT network, supported by industry standard software; a project workshop for new construction technologies and break out areas to allow students to work independently.

“With a projected skills shortage in the construction industries this is the perfect time for Barnsley College to invest in construction education.  The new building houses some fantastic industry specialist facilities in order to provide our students with as much ‘real life’ experience as possible.  It offers education in all the necessary skills so that our students can really build on their construction careers.”

Christopher Webb, Barnsley Colledge Principal

“It was great to see the new facility creating inspiring opportunities for young people as we need people with the skills to make and fix things for a positive future in construction.”

Tony Shaw, Operations Manager, Henry Boot Construction
