The funding is from the Phase 3c of the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, which is run by Salix. £2m will fund decarbonising work within the Adams Building in the Lace Market, and £660k is allocated towards Highfields, part of Nottingham Science Park.

The college will use this funding to make important upgrades to the two campuses’ heating, ventilation systems and lighting, as well as to replace boilers, improve insulation and introduce other new measures to reduce water usage and reliance on other consumables.

Nottingham College has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030 as part of its ​‘Zero’ campaign, with this £2.6m project just one of the many initiatives designed to hit this target.

Work will commence on the Adams project in autumn 2024 and take two years to complete the planned improvements, whilst the Highfields project works will begin in 2025 and are scheduled to last for one year, completed in 2026.

The projects will play a vital role in bringing down the college’s overall carbon footprint over the next six years, and will further improve the study environment for students in both Adams and Highfields once complete.
