The £18.8M contract has been awarded to North West contractor, John Turner Construction Group, who will complete the new five-storey building for the start of the 2020/21 academic year.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mark E. Smith said: “Our leading Management School is home to a thriving international community – one that continues to grow year-on-year. This significant investment will provide state-of-the-art facilities to complement the first class teaching and world-renowned research that we are proud to offer our students.”
The new building, which will cover a total of 5,667m², will offer cutting-edge facilities and significantly more space for students, staff and partners. Offering the space equivalent to around four tennis courts per floor, the building will boast three new lecture theatres, collaboration space, a new reception, multiple offices and an executive teaching suite.
Nigel Sharp, Operations Director at John Turner Construction Group said: “As a leading regional contractor, we are delighted to be awarded this high profile LUMS project and to be working with one of the highest-ranking universities of the north.”
