The new Teaching and Learning Building is the start of a comprehensive redevelopment of the university’s central campus. It will have two lecture theatres, teaching and seminar space as well as social and network areas.

Willmott Dixon is working with architect Berman Guedes Stretton and Pick Everard as project manager. Completion is expected in July 2016

The contract was procured through Scape’s national major works framework, one of its six frameworks.

Willmott Dixon has built similar facilities for other universities, including Kent, Cambridge, Bournemouth, Birmingham City, West London and Brighton, with a combined value of over £250 million.

Willmott Dixon regional managing director Peter Owen said: “Our recent experience in higher education includes the new Curzon Building at Birmingham City University and we’ll be using our experience of working in live environments to ensure we create a centrepiece for Warwick that will provide an excellent learning environment for many generations to come. This will deliver a thriving new central facility for staff and students as well as a striking building architecturally that will be memorable for all visitors.”
