The construction developer Bowmer & Kirkland has won the first building project for the new University of Peterborough. The new campus for the independent university will be built in the Embankment area of the city.
The cabinet at Peterborough City Council has approved for the transfer of land. This is currently owned by the local authority which is now transferred into developing the new campus by a joint venture company.
Approximately 60,000 sq ft three-storey building will be constructed in the first phase of the project. The building includes a mix of teaching spaces, library, labs, and meeting areas with an external car park and associated landscaping.
The construction company has gained the project with an £18.2m bid. The plan was designed by MCW Architects and services engineer Moses Cameron Williams. The project management and cost consultant activities for the project will be handled by Mace.
