Architecture practice launches partnership with college

A new academy based at the Bradford College Trinity Green Campus has launched in partnership with Sheffield-based architects Bond Bryan.

The ‘Bond Bryan Academy’ will see the company’s team serve as guest lecturers, adding industry knowledge and perspective to Bradford College students’ learning.

Bond Bryan will also undertake workshops, site visits, and mentorship programmes for students across various courses in the college’s Construction & Engineering Department.

Bond Bryan has in-depth knowledge of the education sector and curriculum requirements at Bradford College. The team has collaborated on various successful projects to date, including the design and construction of both the College’s David Hockney Building and Advanced Technology Centre.

Bond Bryan CEO Matt Hutton said: “Our ethos is ‘more than design’ which, for us, is about doing something with our clients and communities beyond just the boundary of the projects we’re working on.

“This is a perfect example of how to reach students and create pathways for them into vocational courses, hopefully within this brilliant industry. It’s all about trying to show them that there are opportunities out there beyond what they’ve even considered.

“We have success stories in the office of people that we’ve worked with before at colleges who are now doing really good things for us. We genuinely want to give something back and as an organisation; I want to ensure we are doing things which will make a difference, rather than just box ticking.”
