Bids wanted for £25M university contract

A £25M construction and refurbishment contract has been put up for grabs by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).

The contract comprises of two projects at the university’s Faculty of Art and Design, and will see the refurbishment of the 8640m² Chatham Tower as well as the construction of a new 7246m² facility on the All Saints campus.

The winning contractor will be required to submit their tender by 12pm on Friday 20 August for the contract, which will be led by architect Feilden Clegg Bradley.

The announcement follows a disappointing week for the university which has seen its £120M project for a new Birley Fields campus in Hulme fall by the wayside as spending cuts of £52M at the North West Development Agency bite hard.

The agency announced on Monday that it will no longer be able to provide the funding for the project, which had been designed by John McAslan & Partners.
