News: Howard Building for sale


Rotherham College of Arts and Technology (RCAT) has put the Howard Building in Rotherham town centre up for sale.

The four-storey building on Howard Street is in the heart of the town centre and was opened in the 1930's. It has operated as part of the college and also housed the council's environmental health teams and a day nursery.

RCAT is currently undergoing a multimillion pound investment programme to redevelop their town centre campus. The £7m Wentworth Building opened last year as a new focal point entrance for the college. Designed by Bond Bryan, the building houses high specification classrooms and facilities including IT rooms and Higher Education teaching and learning facilities.

An extra £3m is being invested that will add further to the already highly-equipped Engineering Department and transform the facilities for science teaching. There will also be new hair, beauty and nail salons and a development of the College's Learning Support and Foundation Learning facilities.

The Howard Building is now surplus to requirements and is due to be vacated by August / September 2012.

It has an internal area of 3,900 sq m and includes classrooms, offices, common room, library and meeting rooms. Part of the basement floor has been more recently been used as a nursery.

The site is being sold freehold with vacant possession and is being advertised as having potential for alternative uses subject to planning permission which could include office, retail, hotel and residential use.

Rotherham Borough Council is acting as marketing agents on behalf of RCAT.
