Kier has won the contract to build a research facility for the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).
The contractor will deliver a three-storey structure with 2,500 sq m of office and study space.
The new facilities will adjoin existing LSHTM buildings in Tavistock Place, Bloomsbury.
Work on the project will start in winter 2018, with completion scheduled for 2020.
Kier Construction London managing director Cliff Thomas, said: “We have extensive experience in delivering pioneering research facilities for organisations across the country that allows scientists to advance medical research.”
Earlier this month Kier revealed it had won the contract to deliver a £39m regional distribution facility for value retailer B&M.
The contractor also announced a board reshuffle that promoted Claudio Veritiero to chief operating officer after Nigel Brook and Nigel Turner quit.
