Phase two of Cornwall College Camborne’s £12-million redevelopment project is underway.

The scheme will see significant changes to its campus, which will include a new, modern, and easily maintainable energy centre. 

The ongoing redevelopment involves the planned removal of the Sharman building and the Tamar annex in alignment with the college’s commitment to sustainability. The college states this will not only create space for valuable landscape but also encourage wildlife to the area.  

The iconic Tamar Tower is undergoing a major refurbishment, preserving its historic significance while ensuring it remains a symbol of the College’s legacy.  

The campus is buzzing with activity as trenches are being dug to facilitate the installation of cutting-edge plumbing and pipework, to meet the evolving needs of students and staff, ensuring a state-of-the-art environment to support excellence in education for generations to come.  

Principal John Evans said: “As the highest performing FE College in Cornwall, we want to continue enhancing the overall student experience.  

“One of the notable features in the ongoing redevelopment is the creation of additional greenspace. Picnic benches and communal areas are being introduced to provide learners with inviting spaces for relaxation and socialisation between lessons. 

“The overarching goal of this redevelopment remains to serve the community for generations to come and shape itself into a modern and desirable facility.”
