Bam lands £33m Coventry Uni science ‘super-lab’

Coventry University has chosen Bam Construction to deliver its new £33m Science and Health Building, Construction News understands.

The five-storey research facility will consolidate Coventry University’s existing science laboratory and health simulation facilities into one building, and extend the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences’ ability to offer state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research.

It is understood that Bam beat Galliford Try, Kier, Thomas Vale and Willmott Dixon, which were also bidding for the project, according to construction information unit Glenigan.

The new building will include state-of-the-art healthcare simulation, research and “super-lab” environments, according to the university.

The project also involves construction of a separate two-storey energy centre and associated works, including infrastructure and landscaping of the external works and courtyard areas.

Bam is also building the £50m Living Systems Institute research centre for the University of Exeter (pictured).

Space within the new building will be flexible to adapt to the needs of the university over time. Work is due to start this year, with the building due for completion in 2017.
