Willmott Dixon wins £60m worth of University Contracts
Posted on: 11/10/2017

Willmott Dixon has boosted its education portfolio after securing £60m of contracts at three Midlands Universities.

The company has recently delivered £400m worth of projects in the sector recently, and is adding to this by securing new contracts for the University of Birmingham, Coventry University and Warwick University.

The largest contract is a £36m sports hub for the University of Warwick, which follows the company’s recent completion of the award winning Oculus Building at the same university. The new facility will include a multi-sports hall, climbing facilities, squash courts, swimming pool and multi-purpose studios.

The Coventry University project will include a £15m contract for a low carbon technology centre, where car manufacturers will test the next generation of engines. Coventry already has five cell engine test facilities, with the option to expand to eight. This follows previous Willmott Dixon projects to expand the university with new campuses in London and Scarborough.

The final projects at the University of Birmingham involves two new developments, the first known as ‘The Green Heart’ which will provide a unique space or socialising, performances, meetings and studying, and the other being a new Research Data Centre on the Edgbaston Campus, both equalling £15m.

Each project will aim to attract the best students, academics and businesses, to help further boost the Midlands economy.
