Buttermere Construction Launch January 2022
Pictured at the site of Buttermere are Clare Russell, Runshaw Principal & CEO, Deborah Bamber, Director of Facilities and Martin Scholey, Head of Estates.

We are delighted to announce that spades will hit the ground in the middle of February for works on our new £3m classroom block due for completion in October this year.

Buttermere is possible thanks to a successful bid for the Government’s ‘Post-16 Capacity Fund’ and will ensure we can accommodate the expected demographic increase in 16 to 19-year-olds over the next 5 years.

The building itself will be 1000m2 containing 12 classrooms, at the front of our Leyland Campus, and continues the proud Runshaw tradition of naming buildings after parts of the Lake District as a nod to the beautiful ancient woodland that our Campus is built within. We look forward to watching the progression of work by Collinson Construction.

Clare Russell, Principal & CEO at Runshaw College, said:

We are really proud of our impressive college campus and we constantly invest in our estate to ensure we provide high-quality learning and social spaces, resourced with industry standard equipment and technology. Buttermere will meet the needs of our students both now and in the future, ensuring that our beautiful college campus, facilities and resources continue to be outstanding.
