Dundee and Angus College’s Kingsway Campus will be transformed thanks to a £5.4 million upgrade.

The project will see social spaces, digital resources, beauty and hairdressing facilities all being modernised. The training restaurant will also be revamped.

The Dundee and Angus Foundation secured the funding through grants from Capital Backlog Maintenance and the Scottish Funding Council.

Grant Ritchie, college principal, said: “We are absolutely delighted to announce the start of this project and would like to thank our key funders. Young people in this region will benefit hugely from improved facilities for professional work-based learning.

“The investment will also help local firms get moving again after the lockdown and provide much needed employment opportunities.”

Building firm Robertson has been assigned as the main contractor for the work and the college has pledged to ensure most of the subcontracting goes to local firms in a bid to “stimulate the local economy”.
