Morgan Sindall has been appointed by the University of Sussex to design and build a new £17.8m academic building.
It will house the School of Law, Politics & Sociology, the School of Business, Management at Economics, and will be the biggest lecture theatre on the University’s campus, at Falmer.
The new building will cover 8,000 sq m, and feature sustainable technologies such as a sedum roof and rainwater harvesting.
Morgan Sindall will be employing 50 local companies to work on the project with up to 200 construction workers on site at the project’s peak.
Work begins on site in October and is due to complete in April 2012.
