Tenders to be invited for £11m university leisure facility

Contractors will be invited to bid on an £11 million leisure facility at the University of Central Lancashire now Drivers Jonas has been appointed as project manager.

Drivers Jonas has assembled a consultant team to develop the design for the scheme and has shortlist contractors prior to tender later in the year.

The 6,000 sq m development, which is due for completion toward the end of next year, is being built on the University’s main campus site in Preston city centre.

The Drivers Jonas team have been working closely with the university in consulting with key stakeholders in order to develop the design.

The new scheme – which will include a fitness suite, studios, sports hall and pre-school nursery – will open up future development opportunities for the University on the site of their existing leisure and nursery facilities.
