The new teaching facilities will be laid by BAM Construction, as Plymouth University approves the firm to go on with the main campus construction. The project includes both a new-build and a refurbishment of a 1970s teaching block.
These works will create more than 10,000 m² of research and teaching space. The western edge of the university’s main campus will witness Reconstruction of the Babbage building.
The construction will provide a new home for the Computing & Mathematics, School of Engineering, and additional space for the School of Art, Design & Architecture. Plymouth City Council has already approved for conditional planning.
Under the Southern Construction framework, BAM will start its works while it is expected to take on initial works starting from early next year along with final exchange of contracts.
