Runshaw college

PMc were appointed by Runshaw College in 2020 to complete a strategic estates review.  We concluded that there was an excess of space across the two college sites at Leyland and Chorley and that 16-18 learners much preferred the experience of studying at the Leyland campus. The Estate Strategy recommended consolidating all on-site learning activity onto a single campus and proposed a series refurbishment and new build projects at the Leyland site to create the best possible learning environment.

Subsequently we have supported the College in the development of a number of funding bids for both 16-19 growth funding and T-Level investment and have worked with the College and Day architects to develop a medium term master plan to guide future investment in the estate.

Projects that have been delivered subsequent to the development of the estate strategy include:

The Buttermere Building

In summer 2021, PMc submitted a Post 16 capacity fund bid which included a 1,000m2 new building on the Leyland campus. These spaces provided the Engineering curriculum with inspiring, flexible environments that promotes innovative means of curriculum delivery through a good balance of theory, project and collaboration work. 

T Level Wave 4 Project

PMc worked with the curriculum team to submit a T Level wave 4 bid for Healthcare and which successful. The bid comprised of refurbishments to the Eskdale building to repurpose the existing space to create industry standard teaching accommodation for the Health and Science T Level learners with works completing in the summer of 2023.
