  • Peter Marsh (2000-06) took on the task of planning and managing the whole rebuilding programme.  Peter combined financial and management skills with a passionate understanding and commitment to the role accommodation could play in the college's educational mission

  • The popularity of the building and its welcoming character are an excellent example of public buildings reinforcing both a community and urban environment.

  • This example of part-refurbishment, part-rebuild is an exemplary case of blending old and new. But it is also a perfect example of an education project doing so much to kick-start the urban regeneration of the area in which it sits

  • Peter and I worked very closely together throughout the 2000-2005 period when he led the major transformation of the College’s estate. The complexity of the funding, space planning and financial modelling that underpinned the delivery of these projects was seriously impressive.   What really stood out for me was the vision and passion with which he delivered each project, and the way all the teams who worked for him bought into that vision, and in doing so, created a set of remarkable learning environments.

    Frank McLoughlin CBE Principal, City & Islington College
  • Peter brings a rare combination of financial astuteness, a passion for great design and a deep insight into the ways in which well-planned space can enhance learning. His drive and enterprise were fundamental to the successful completion of what was the most ambitious property strategy undertaken in the FE sector at the time.

    Jack Morris OBE Chairman, Business Design Centre Group Ltd
  • Whilst it was a huge learning curve by working together as a team we came up with something that exceeded expectations in what it is, what it looks like and what it can do.

    Steve Dingsdale Assistant Principal, Fareham College & Managing Director, CEMAST
  • Peter brought gravitas, astute commercial awareness and an unquestionable drive to succeed in these challenging negotiations. He quickly identified the key blockages to the negotiations by understanding the underlying commercial risks facing the PFI provider whilst effectively safeguarding the Council’s position. Without Peter’s tenacity and sophisticated communication skills the Council would have lost £60million BSF funding and the transformation of 6 schools would not have taken place.

  • Through the development and implementation of a multi-phase £28m capital investment project, Peter, and the team he led, delivered a combination of new build and refurbishment of the entire college over two campuses in just 1000 days, on time and within budget.

    Nigel Duncan Principal, Fareham College
  • The CEMAST project has gained national recognition for its attractive and efficient learning environments. Fareham College had the vision, Peter Marsh delivered it!

    Nigel Duncan Principal, Fareham College
  • As Principal, I had a vision, but I needed someone to bring it to fruition.  Peter Marsh presented the ideal solution; knowledgeable about further education, an expert in project management and with astute financial management, Peter gave Fareham College the required expertise to deliver the ‘dream’.
