Joseph Wright Centre

Derby College, Cathedral Road

Derby, Derbyshire

Cedar House Investments handed over the keys to the £12 million Joseph Wright Centre, Derby College's only purpose built sixth-form centre, a month ahead of schedule. The centre opened in September 2005 and will provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for 1500 students. Open walkways on four levels lead off an imposing 60 metre high atrium that provides a 360 degree view of the 10 computer teaching rooms and 35 classrooms. Access to this "cathedral of learning" is via electronic cards which will double up for use in the cashless restaurant, registration and library and CCTV has been installed to provide additional security.
