The project includes the refurbishment of a 12-storey teaching block, the construction of a new six-storey building and the conversion of a two-storey building, along with all associated mechanical and electrical work. Some 27,700m2 of new teaching and support office space will be created. The buildings are designed to attain a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating.

Balfour Beatty Major Projects northern managing director Jon Adams said: “We have a track record of delivering work for De Montfort University dating back over ten years, having previously refurbished the Hawthorn Building and constructed the centre-piece Campus Centre building in 2003, and we are looking forward to delivering another part of the university’s ambitious transformation programme.”
