The Construction Centre will host a wide range of courses under one roof when it opens in December 2020.
The two-storey centre will train the next generation of plumbers, bricklayers, painters, electricians and joiners.
Jackie Moores, principal, Tameside College said: “We are delighted that Bardsley Construction, as a local employer, will build our new construction centre.
“As the number one college in Greater Manchester for school leavers and apprentices we need first class facilities for our learners, employers and staff.
“We are confident that Bardsley Construction will meet the high specifications required to meet the expectations of students and employers.”
Ged Rooney, pre-construction director at Bardsley Construction, said: “Bardsley has a long-standing and proud reputation for training and developing the skills of people in the construction sector via initiatives such as Give Construction a Try and our valued appointment to deliver this outstanding centre for Tameside College underlines that ongoing commitment.”
The Construction Skills Centre has been designed by Manchester-based architects 10 Architect.
Other members of the College’s project team include Fusion Project Management, Arcadis, Waterman Building Services and Scott Hughes Design.
