Liverpool University is calling on a contractor for a large student accommodation block and science department as part of its £600 million redevelopment scheme.
CN reported in June on the plans for the university, including £250m of accommodation and £350m on academic estates, part of which has already been assigned. At that time it said the academic estate plans include £70m investment in its science research facilities to accommodate 600 researchers.
Wates and Shepherd Construction have already been appointed on parts of the redevelopment, with OCON doing some accommodation.
The university said it is now seeking a design and build contractor to construct new residences for students and post graduates and families.
It will include construction work for halls of residence, demolition of the current veterinary science block and a new build, self-catered, undergraduate student bedroom project for 1,051 people, including associated public realm works in a city centre location at the heart of the University of Liverpool campus.
The development consists of three number, multi-storey blocks (some with courtyards) containing a range of residential cluster flats to their upper floors and non-residential uses/parking at ground floor ‘podium’ level.
This design should include estimated cost and outline programme. Time-limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 10am on 22 August.
