Willmott Dixon scoops £20m Goldsmiths job

Willmott Dixon has won a £20 million contract to build new facilities for Goldsmiths, University of London.

The contractor will build the £20 million new home for the college’s department of media and communications – and has pledged to use local sub-contractors where possible.

The four-storey, steel-framed building will be built on the existing campus in New Cross, south east London.

It will house a range of specialist rooms, including radio, TV and photographic studios and darkrooms, a 250-seat lecture theatre, teaching rooms and offices. 

Goldsmiths aims for the facility to achieve a Very Good BREEAM rating, helped by natural ventilation throughout, and four large wind towers on the roof.

Willmott Dixon is working with architect Stride Treglown, and aims to complete the project by August 2010.

Willmott Dixon Dartford office managing director Rob Lambe said: “We’ve worked very hard already to get to this stage and are looking forward to starting on site soon.

“We will try where possible to award significant construction work packages to local companies in order to support the regional economy.”
