Richmond upon Thames College wins ‘Project of the Year’ award, alongside ‘Civic Building of the Year.’

Friday 4 February 2022

In October 2021, Richmond upon Thames College won two independent awards, ‘Project of the Year’ and ‘Civic Building of the Year’ for The Richmond Building, which is part of the new college campus.

‘Project of the year’ was won by RuTC for being a college new build project that has made a significant difference to the educational or research experience of its students. The new building was completed in March 2020 on the existing site in Twickenham and students and staff moved in shortly after.

Richmond upon Thames College was nominated for the award alongside Digital and Data Centre Exeter College and SGS Wise – Brunel Centre, with the Richmond Building taking home the win.

The new state of the art building is comprised of ultra-modern classrooms with specialist rooms for digital and graphics courses, an auditorium with seating for 160 people, as well as a live performance stage, TV, drama, dance and music studios and ceramics, darkroom and printmaking areas, amongst many more stand-out features.

The £80 million state-of-the-art campus building provides an inspirational learning environment for students and the local community to enjoy.

The building includes learning space for up to 3,000 students, as well as an exhibition art gallery, which provides an opportunity for local artists and photographers to exhibit their work and business incubation spaces with a business lounge for employers.

Jason Jones, Principal and CEO at Richmond upon Thames College was thrilled to accept both the award and certificate. “I already knew we had one of the best College campus buildings in London, but to receive both prestigious awards, officially confirms just that.”

“We are extremely proud of The Richmond Building and are eagerly awaiting the new STEM Centre which will offer students looking to study science, technology, engineering and maths a second to none learning space.”

The handing over of the award was delayed until 26 January due to COVID-19.
