Capital City College Group
Capital City College Group is London’s largest further education college group comprising three colleges City and Islington College, Westminster Kingsway College, and the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London as well as bespoke training provider for employers and apprentices, Capital City College Training, and a social enterprise, Visionnaires, designed to help new businesses succeed.
The Group operate over a combined estate of nearly 100,000 square metres situated in the London Boroughs of Camden, Westminster, Islington, Harringey and Enfield. The Group’s estate includes many high quality buildings – some dating back to the 1800s and many having been build in the last 25 years. The Group operates some of the most efficient buildings in the FE Sector – particularly at its central London sites at Angel and Kings Cross.
Back in 2000 to 2005 Peter led the capital project team at City and Islington College to deliver the most ambitious accommodation programme in the history of further education at that time. The £64m programme included new buildings at Finsbury Park, Angel and Holloway as well as substantial refurbishments of retained buildings at both Holloway and the Angel. Over £50million of this was paid for by the college itself from site sale proceeds with the balance coming from capital grant from the Department for Education. The buildings set new design standards on incredibly tight budgets and were recognised by the Civic Trust Awards, the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Awards, the American Institute of Architects Awards plus the Islington Society Architecture & Conservation Award.
PMc have been working with the Group since 2017 – supporting the development of an education-led estates strategy and the creation of a master plan with a pipeline of projects designed to continue investment in the highest quality learning facilities for London’s learners.
