Engineering education group to launch new campus at “upcoming” Docklands site
An engineering higher education enterprise has chosen a development in London’s Docklands as the location for its new campus.
British Land has announced that it has signed its first pre-let with TEDI-London at its Canada Water development.
TEDI-London will take an initial 13,000 sq ft of floor space at the site, with the option to expand up to 40,000 sq ft, which British Land will deliver in phases as the organisation grows.
British Land will begin work on the modular campus in January 2021, with work scheduled to be completed in time for TEDI-London to welcome its first full-time cohort of students in September 2021 at Canada Water.
In the long term, British Land will work with TEDI-London to deliver a permanent home for around 1,000 students within the Canada Water masterplan.
Roger Madelin, joint head of Canada Water, commented: “We have an incredible opportunity at Canada Water to build a genuinely vibrant, mixed use neighbourhood for London, and education will be a key part of this.
“TEDI-London is a truly innovative and unique education programme that will partner with business to deliver graduates with the skills to solve 21st Century challenges.
“The impact of engineering is all around us, and TEDI-London is exactly the kind of organisation we’re looking to attract to Canada Water.”
Professor Judy Raper, TEDI-London Dean and CEO, said: “We’re delighted to be setting up home in one of London’s most exciting and upcoming areas.
“British Land’s vision for Canada Water is a fantastic opportunity for TEDI-London and our staff and students to be part of a progressive, green, sustainable new urban space.”
