Dave Barkley, contract manager for Glendale, comments: “We are developing a detailed work programme with Kirklees College to take into account the busiest times of the day, in order to minimise disruption as much as possible and safeguard the students.

“Having a high quality campus is essential for colleges like Kirklees as it is one of the key selling points for new students looking to join.  It is therefore important that we ensure the site is aesthetically pleasing all year round and provides plenty of well maintained green space for sport and leisure activities.”
