The new MIRA Technology Institute (MTI) facility located on the Horiba MIRA Enterprise Zone, Nuneaton, was successfully completed in September 2018.
The project has been developed to help students to thrive and develop their technological skills, supporting and developing the Global Automotive Industry.
Following a grant of £9.5M from Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP), the facility features 15 training rooms and 3 workshops, providing future students industry-led courses.
Fellows are appointed as Project Manager on behalf of North Warwickshire & South Leicestershire College and have been working on the scheme for three years through the early feasibility and fund application stages to the final delivery stage.
Fellows worked closely with the College and associated stakeholders – MIRA, Coventry University, University of Leicester and Loughborough University.
“The College needed a powerful Project Manager to deliver our exciting, but complex multi-partnered MIRA Technology Institute. Steven Handley of Fellows grasped the challenge with enthusiasm, providing an eager commitment with affable style and professional presentation. I would gladly recommend Fellows for complex, multi-partnered developments where expert project and cost management is a necessity”

“The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) has worked very closely with Fellows since the inception of the Skills Training Centre. I am personally really impressed with how professional, efficient and personable the team has been through a challenging project inception. Fellows are a pleasure to work with. As you would expect with public sector funding, there are conditions attached, and these are fulfilled through site visits and regular reporting against program, budget, outputs and benefits. The communication between Fellows and the LLEP is great and the standard of project reporting provided is exactly what’s needed”
