Morgan Sindall in £15.8m Herts Uni win

Morgan Sindall has won a £15.8 million deal to redevelop facilities at the University of Hertfordshire.

The development will include the construction of a new two-storey student services building and a new main reception area and learning zone at the university’s College Lane campus.

Work also includes the refurbishment of several existing buildings at the campus in Hatfield.

The contract follows the appointment of the Uliving consortium for a deal to build 2,511 new student accommodation rooms at the university earlier thus year.

Uliving comprises Bouygues Development and housing association Derwent Living.

The new building will be a glass-clad multi-use development that includes a student and learning zone, student support services, enrolment, administration offices and a coffee bar.

The project is part of the University of Hertfordshire’s 2020 Estates Vision redevelopment plan, which will transform the university’s College Lane and de Havilland Campuses.

The new-build development is designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.

The project is due to complete in May 2014 and will see around 80 people working on site at the peak of construction, many of whom will be drawn from the local area.
