September sees us returning to the University of York, this time to support Interserve in their £17 million contract to design and build a three-storey development at the University of York’s Campus East. It is our fifth visit to the campus having worked with BAM, Vinci and McAlpine on the site previously over the last 6 years
The ‘Piazza Learning Centre’ will house teaching facilities and learning spaces, as part of a £27 million scheme on the campus. The project, Interserve’s second with the University of York, will feature 36 flexible learning spaces, including two laboratories, a 350-seat auditorium, a 100-seat lecture theatre, a 300-seat restaurant, as well as staff areas and offices spread across 6,800 m2.
The new building will be used by the University’s International Pathway College (IPC), as well as providing additional teaching space for Campus East. The International Pathway College, a joint venture between the University of York and Kaplan, provides academic preparation programmes for international students prior to them progressing to their undergraduate and postgraduate studies within the University.
Our package includes the substucture and upper floors to the main building, drainage and external services and surfaces. A package of £1.4million in value.
