Morgan Sindall bag £8.5m Newman University job

Morgan Sindall has been awarded an £8.5 million contract to create a new entrance building and library at Newman University College in Birmingham.

The project will create a new three-storey building including a state-of-the-art library, offices, teaching space, a café and an atrium.

Morgan Sindall’s specialist in-house piling team will carry out works to provide a base for the new building before installation of the exposed concrete frame. They will construct 262 continuous flight augered bearing piles, 350mm and 400mm diameter, to a maximum depth of 18.1m.

Morgan Sindall area director Dave Smith said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen to create an inspiring new learning space for Newman University College. Since the formation of the new Morgan Sindall brand, bringing together our design, construction and infrastructure services, we have been able to offer our customers a more integrated solution and on this project we will be working with our dedicated piling team to help deliver a first-class facility.”

The project is due to be completed in January 2012.
