The building is to house the university’s Faculty of Health & Social Sciences on its Lansdowne campus.
A planning application has been lodged with Bournemouth Borough Council.
The proposed building will provide 10,000 m2 of teaching space. It will primarily be used by more than 4,000 students, bringing together the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences, which is currently based in various buildings on Christchurch Road. The faculty trains nurses, midwives and paramedics as well as other health professionals and researchers. It also houses the National Centre for Post Qualifying Social Work.
The scheme also encompasses associated external works and landscaping, including junctions to an adopted highway.
The project is targeting a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) rating of Excellent.
Morgan Sindall area director Jon Daines, at, said: “We’re delighted to have reached second-stage discussions with the university on this landmark scheme which will provide the students and staff at Bournemouth University with a state-of-the-art academic building and provide an attractive, impactful gateway to the University’s facilities at Lansdowne.
“Morgan Sindall is well versed in delivering projects of this nature and scale and we look forward to close partnership working with the university and our project partners as we complete the final plans and details for the scheme.”
Morgan Sindall has been appointed to the scheme via the Southern Construction Framework.
