Strabag to build €100m university campus
Strabag subsidiary Züblin is to build a €100m (£83m) campus for Hamm-Lippstadt University in Germany.
Work includes lecture halls, laboratories, administration buildings and exterior facilities. The turnkey project has a 59,000 m² gross floor area and will be built over a period of 20 months.
The new Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences began operations in the cities of Hamm and Lippstadt in North-Rhine Westphalia in 2009 but has so far been operating in temporary makeshift premises. Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW Soest has commissioned Züblin to build the entire Hamm Campus and part of the Lippstadt Campus. The projects, with a total value of about €100m, will be carried out by Züblin’s Dortmund, Bonn and Saxony divisions.
The three-to-four-storey buildings at both locations will for the most part be realised as steel-and-concrete structures with facing brick façades and aluminium ribbon windows. An important component of both parts of the contract is the entire building service engineering, including laboratories for university, which focuses on maths, computer sciences, natural sciences and engineering focused university.
A total of about 38,000m² of gross floor area will be built at the Hamm Campus and about 21,000m² at Lippstadt. The two campuses will then offer enough places for about 2,500 students.
