Morgan Sindall has been handed a contract to build a new £27.5m building for the University of Huddersfield.
The new six-storey building will be developed in Huddersfield’s city campus and provide a home for the university’s School of Music, Humanities and Media.
It will cover 7,500 sq m and provide a link to the university’s student central building that was finished in January 2014 by the Leeds-based GB Building Solutions, which went into administration earlier this year.
GB Building Solutions had initially been selected for the project in February 2015 but had to be replaced a month later after it went into administration.
Morgan Sindall’s area director for Leeds, Chris Brown, said: “This is a key building for both the university and the town. It is a fantastic project to be involved with and our appointment builds on the existing relationship we have with the University of Huddersfield.
“We very much look forward to getting on site and creating this amazing building, which will mark Huddersfield out as a forward-thinking town.”
