Following a competitive tender process, the University has selected Mace as the preferred partner to undertake the construction of a new Life Sciences estate. The project will be delivered by PREACH, Mace’s public sector and education construction business unit.

The development of a new building would be the latest investment in the University’s programme to modernise and improve the campus.

Simon Neale, the University’s Director of Estates and Facilities said: “Mace has clearly understood our ambition to develop a beacon of science and innovation excellence that will bring significant economic and social benefit to the South East and UK. 

“We will work together to create outstanding modern laboratories and high-tech teaching and research spaces that will inspire the scientists of tomorrow and our talented group of world-leading academics.”

Work on construction will commence in 2018.
