Advanced Construction Skills Centre

Interested in studying one of our construction courses? In September 2021 we are opening a £9m state-of-the-art construction facility in South Bristol.

Update on the new building construction: Midas and its team of contractors have been working tirelessly to ensure the Advanced Construction Skills Centre stays on schedule. Over the past few months, work has accelerated on the centre, with the roof now complete, the internal and external brick walls nearing completion, the curtain wall being installed, and the M&E fit out has started. The building is set to be water-tight by March and will be handed over to the college for internal fitting around Easter.
