The new sports facilities are part of a £100m estates development plan that is transforming Solent University’s East Park Terrace (EPT) campus.
The sports building will have two halls, three fitness studios, a health and wellbeing gym, a strength and conditioning gym and high quality teaching facilities. Parking will be available underneath the building.
Andy Duff, managing director of Morgan Sindall in the south, said: “Several managers within our construction staff are Solent University graduates, so there is particular pride in our involvement with the sports building project. This is a striking development that will create a fantastic entrance to the East Park Terrace campus and we’re looking forward to working closely with the entire project team to deliver a great building for the university.”
Completion is scheduled for summer 2019.
The design team included Morgan Sindall, Architecture PLB and Arup as engineer, with support from planning consultant JLL.
