Background

City of Westminster College entered a new and exciting phase in its 100-plus year history in January 2011, with the opening of the new Paddington Green Campus.

The £102 million Campus, largely grant funded by the Learning and Skills Council, was designed to be in tune with the historic nature of the local area and take advantage of its superb site overlooking Paddington Green and St Mary’s Gardens. Incorporating extensive outdoor spaces into its innovative stepped design, the building maximises light and space, while respecting local surroundings.

Stace project managed the demolition of the existing college and construction of a new 23,330m² college campus which received an RIBA Regional Award.

The project encompassed sustainability requirements, including green roofs and combined heat and power plant.
