Willmott Dixon wins £26m University of Kent hub
Willmott Dixon has landed a £26m contract for an academic ‘hub’ building for the University of Kent in Canterbury.
The new four-storey scheme will be home to the Kent Business School and the School of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science across an 8,000m2 complex.
Willmott Dixon’s Kent based local team will start shortly on site with work scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
Also on the scheme are project manager BNP Paribas Real Estate, architect Penoyre and Prasad, M&E provider Max Fordham, structural engineer Price & Myers plus Betteridge & Milsom as QS.
Roger Forsdyke, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the Southern Home Counties, said: “This hub will give each of the departments their own distinct learning area that will attract students and academics keen to develop their knowledge and research using these high-tech facilities.
“Importantly, we’ll be bringing our experience of higher education and working in live environments on major hub projects to ensure we create a centrepiece that will provide an excellent learning environment for many generations to come.”
