The £48m restoration of the grade II-listed Roundhouse railworks complex in Derby has been completed by Bowmer & Kirkland.

It now forms a vocational campus for Derby College. The 16-sided former railway works building, which features a spectacular 40m-diameter central space that once housed a train turntable, has become a social hub open to students and the public. The new campus includes teaching facilities in four refurbished Victorian buildings and a new-build wing that features coloured individual learning ‘pods’ designed to echo railway carriages.
