Derby College

The Project
The Project Management and relocation of 20,000 students and 1,500 staff from across a number of sites to the £48 million award winning iconic Roundhouse building at Pride Park.

Working closely with the college, Johnsons Moving Services were able to develop a relocation strategy, identifying opportunities to make cost savings and reduce the impact to the college during the relocation process.

Buildings and departments moved:

The Roundhouse 
Vocational (Motor Vehicle, Hair & Beauty, Art, Engineering, Plumbing and Gas)
Broomfield Hall 
Vocational Land based Sports and Public Services
South East Derbyshire – Ilkeston and Heanor
Vocational (Construction, Wood, Plastering, Trowel Occupations, Brickwork, Hair, Beauty, Media – Game Design)

The Result
The College extended our contract for another year due to the high level of service provided. During this time we undertook the planning and relocation of additional sites across Derbyshire, assisted with the clearance and closures of redundant sites, removed, relocated and installed machinery into a first floor building using platforms and cranes, tested and certified car ramps.
