College construction projects are due to benefit from increased capital investment by the Government, and with the value of further education projects securing planning approval during 2018 and 2019 being 46% up on the preceding two years (Glenigan Construction Forecast), 2021 is expected to be a good year for College construction project-starts.

Here we look at the top 5 College construction projects (by total project value) due to start on-site this year, for a taster of what’s to come.
