Construction begins on new £20 million University of Nottingham development
Gleeds is pleased to announce that construction work has begun on the development of a new £20 million Teaching and Learning Hub at The University of Nottingham.
Designed by award-winning architectural practice, Make, the project involves the construction of a new 5,000m2 teaching facility that sits on the University Park campus. The site is widely regarded as one of the most attractive in the country and is the largest of four campuses which cover an area of over 300 acres. The new building will be situated adjacent to the award-winning Hallward Library and will comprise a range of teaching facilities, as well as staff and student amenities.
Gleeds is providing project management services for the new development which was commissioned as part of a £500 million capital investment plan.
James Marshall, Gleeds director based in Nottingham, commented: “The new facilities seeks to provide a greater educational experience and will help attract both national and international students to the city of Nottingham. We are delighted to be involved in this project and look forward to seeing it complete.”
David Patterson, Partner at Make said: “This will be a beautiful building on a beautiful campus. We are aiming to create an inspiring environment for both students and teachers and one which will accommodate current and future demands for light, vibrant, student-focused spaces.”
Construction is due to complete early 2018.
