LGF Project Delivered

Project Completion Date


Autumn 2021

The project involves development of a new 3,200sqm Digital Technologies Campus in the heart of Basildon town centre, directly adjacent to the bus hub and train station.  It also involves linking with the new business start-up and incubator space in the Eastgate Centre, providing training, support and incubation/forum space for start-up companies linked to digital technologies. The innovative centre will provide leading edge facilities and learning opportunities across the digital technologies spectrum to meet identified industry and employer needs. Spanning from IT networking to cyber-security, animation, gaming and programming, plus many others, it serves to provide training and learning in key identified skills shortage areas where there are also significant employment opportunities.

The project will secure over 150 jobs at the Campus and will serve over 800 students per annum by 2021.  The project will also deliver wider employment and town centre regeneration benefits.
