Project description
This was flagship re-development of a further education college. The project involved the demolition and clearance of redundant buildings, the refurbishment and conversion of two historic and grandiose buildings and the planning and building of high end homes in the grounds. Planning permission was given for its plan for high quality residential development in Q4 2006. The land and buildings were then sold to Avant Homes (then known as Bett Homes), Barratt PLC and Crosby Homes, who built out the high quality homes in the plan. The site is now an established high quality residential estate.

The site was formerly used as a further education college – New College Durham – specialising in teacher training. The college buildings were situated in mature and extensive grounds.
