Bids are being invited for a £12 million contract to build a replacement hall of residence for the Royal Veterinary College in Hatfield.
The new building, which is replacing the college’s Northumberland Hall, will house 188 students.
As well as the accommodation units the development will include catering facilities, and ancillary buildings.
The contractor will also have to demolish the existing buildings on the site and carry out landscaping.
Firms have until 28 August to submit pre-qualification questionnaires. A shortlist of between five and eight will be invited to tender in September.
