The University plans to spend almost £100m on building an integrated campus for engineering and physical sciences at Woodhouse Lane.

Among the firms understood to be bidding for the project are laboratory specialists M+W Group, and BAM Construction. The planned 160,000 sq ft facility is set to house hi-tech laboratories and academic offices.

The preferred contractor for this Leeds University project is expected to be named in November, allowing work to start by March 2018, with completion of the project set for summer 2020.

The project has been designed by Manchester Architect ADP, and consists of a new 60 storey building, a full height atrium, and refurbishment of the Grade II listed Old Mining Building. The Manchester office of Arcadis are on board as Project Manager.

Supporting the priorities of the Government’s Industrial Strategy, and strengthening the University’s international reputation. The investment is an integral part of the University’s £520m campus development programme, aimed at securing the University’s place in the UK’s top 10 research universities.
