Adding to the regeneration of Bradford, the new multi-million pound David Hockney campus was ready to welcome learners in September 2014, providing an innovative and technology rich learning environment in the heart of the city. The eco-friendly campus design has a light and airy feel and is sympathetic to the large-scale mill and warehouse buildings that characterise parts of Bradford. The new campus, named after famous Bradford College alumnus,internationally acclaimed artist and Yorkshire Icon, David Hockney has transformed the learner experience using new styles of learning, which embrace cutting edge technologies.

The David Hockney Building at Bradford College has been nominated for a number of awards, includingthe BIM4SME Awards, Concrete Society Awards, West Yorkshire LABC Building Excellence Awards, and the Construction News Awards. The iconic building has also been selected to feature on the front of the Graphisoft ArchiCAD 19 box cover and CD packaging, as a signature building in the industry. ArchiCAD software is an international product, which means The David Hockney Building is been seen on a global scale.

Measuring 23,000m² in size, the new six-storey building sweeps up Great Horton Road and has been built on the College’s former city centre sites (Westbrook Building) and Randall Well Building. The College’s new build has replaced the Westbrook and McMillan Buildings. The Westbrook Building will be demolished and the remaining buildings will either be sold or put to other use.
