Salford University kicks off masterplan with Morgan Sindall
Morgan Sindall has been appointed by Salford University to design and build the first phase of its new masterplan – the £35m New Engineering Centre.
The new building will start on site in early 2019 involving CIOB members. It will house the schools of computing, science and engineering and will be located at the Peel Park Campus, adjacent to the Chapman Building, Chapman Square, New Adelphi and the Library.
It is key to the university’s Industry Collaboration Zone strategy – a programme that focuses on collaboration within and across the university with partners in particular industry sectors and will see the creation and development of Industry Collaboration Zones.
The university unveiled its masterplan in March. It focuses on regenerating several key areas of the university, a radical overhaul of the estate, and linking the campus with local industry, culture and residential communities.
