PLANS to transform the face of Brierley Hill with a new £12m college campus are on track.

Work on Stourbridge’s College’s new creative industries campus is now underway on the old Brier School site - and bosses this week released a new image of what the cutting edge development will look like.

Stourbridge College principal Lynette Cutting said: “We are all really excited about the new building.

“We have worked hard to make sure we have good value for money on every aspect of the building and it’s going to be inspiring for the students.”

The work is being carried out by BAM Construction, who have extensive experience in the education sector, and architects Pick Everard came up with the state-of-the-art design - which will include an iconic glass frontage.

Andy Almond, partner at Pick Everard, said: “The design for the centre has resulted from close collaboration between Stourbridge College and its professional consultants with 'first class learning' being the clear target at all stages.

“We have created an excitingly dynamic design which reflects the nature of the aspiring students and contributes positively to the location."

The eco-friendly new building will accommodate up to 1,000 art and design, textiles, fashion, graphics, illustration and digital media students and will be up and running in September 2011.
