Durham Uni seeks contractor for two new colleges
Durham University is advertising for a contractor to design, build, finance and operate a £100m student accommodation development.
The university has bought land on the former Mount Oswald gold course that Banks Group is developing for housing. It has outline planning permission for 1,000 student rooms.
The university expects its student body to grow by 6,000 over the next 10 years and so needs more accommodation for them.
Durham University is divided into colleges, like Oxford and Cambridge; Mount Oswald, close to the city centre, is set to house to new colleges, each of approximately 500 self-catered student bedrooms, plus associated college infrastructure and common space.
The university's preference is for the delivery of both colleges as early as possible, with at least 700 bedrooms, plus all the associated social and college administration facilities being available for occupation by September 2019 year. Further work to deliver the final 300 rooms would be completed by September 2021.
With the contract let on a DBFO basis, the full term for the facilities management element could be as much as 50 years.
