Lendlease has won an £80m contract with Liverpool John Moores University for the redevelopment of a mixed-use building.
Work has already begun on site, where the contractor is transforming a former Royal Mail sorting office into a “flagship” university building.
The Copperas Hill project will include three libraries, a teaching unit, sports facilities and office space.
Lendlease managing director of construction in Europe Neil Martin said: “Working for clients on sizeable and complex projects is something Lendlease does well.
“We like to work closely with clients to find out exactly what they want, and we hope we add value to them by bringing both our local relationships and global expertise to bear.”
The enabling work is due to complete in August, with main construction set to start in the summer.
The project is scheduled to complete in the first half of 2018.
BDP Architects, Curtins Structural Engineers and Arup Building Services Engineer designed the development.
