Crossfield Construction have successfully handed over the first purpose-designed digital and coding academy in the UK.
The Liverpool contractor delivered the £1 million scheme for the City of Liverpool College, following a tight programme over the summer, to allow students to move in on time for the Autumn term.
Working within a live operational environment, works comprised of a full refurbishment and expansion of the College’s existing facilities to equip its students with the very latest digital technology and software.
The new academy, based within the Arts centre at the Myrtle Street Campus now teaches young people coding, software development and a range of other digital skills, including online marketing and games design.
The college anticipates student numbers in the School of Computer Science and Digital will grow from their current level of about 300 at any time to up to 500.

Crossfield were proud to employ a 100% Liverpool supply chain for the scheme.

“It’s been an exceptional performance by the Crossfield team. There was excellent communication from the team throughout. If something couldn’t be done, they let us know, and that is all a client wants ”
