Wates wins £13m university build contract

The University of Liverpool has awarded Wates Construction with a £13m project to build its new Central Teaching Laboratory.

The 83,562 sq ft building has been designed by ADP architects, which is headquartered in Birmingham but has a Manchester office, and will provide facilities for undergraduate science teaching.

Work is scheduled to begin in May, with completion expected in July 2011. The three-storey building will be located adjacent to the undergraduate lecture theatre, at the heart of the university's science teaching campus in Oxford Street. Landscaped green space will border the development to the south of the site.

Phillip Woodward, from the University of Liverpool, said: "We have worked with Wates in the past on our Sydney Jones Library project and we are looking forward to partnering with them once again on this new exciting development."

Wates Construction, which has a regional base in Manchester, was also recently awarded with a £19.5m contract from Liverpool John Moores University to design and build its new Mount Pleasant campus.
