Morgan Sindall to build Bournemouth University's £39.5m health faculty

Morgan Sindall has been appointed via the Southern Construction Framework to design and build a new £39.5m Faculty of Health and Social Sciences for Bournemouth University.

The 10,000 sq m building will, subject to planning permission, be built at Lansdowne, on the main routes into the town by road and rail.

It will enable the university to consolidate the faculty on a single site and will also house the National Centre for Post-Qualifying Social Work. The project seeks to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.

Morgan Sindall area director Jon Daines said: “We’re delighted to have reached second-stage discussions with the university on this landmark scheme, which will provide the students and staff at Bournemouth University with a state-of-the-art academic building and provide an attractive, impactful gateway to the university’s facilities at Lansdowne.”

The scheme includes associated external works and landscaping, parking and junctions to an adopted highway.

Morgan Sindall is also redeveloping Bournemouth Borough Council’s nearby former Winter Gardens theatre in a £102m project.

Bournemouth University is in the midst of a £250m investment in new and redesigned buildings, and last year opened a £10.5m student centre.

Willmott Dixon is near to completing the university’s £40m Fusion academic building, the new centrepiece of its main Talbot campus.
