It has been announced that Willmott Dixon has signed a contract to build Kingston University’s town house project, which will cost in the region of £41m.
This new building will act as the front door to the university offering information to current and prospective students, such as achievements and collaborations with industry and the arts.
This project is part of a bigger £260m scheme to transform the whole estate, which will see a mix of teaching and performance space, library, covered courtyards and cafes.
The new town house building has been designed by Grafton Architects, who are no strangers when it comes to this type of project, as they recently won a RIBA award for the world’s best new building for the latest campus at Peru’s University of Technology and Engineering.
Willmott Dixon has been named education constructor of the year by Education Investor Magazine for three years in a row, so it’s no surprise why Kingston University finally decided to choose them to deliver this project.
This is a fantastic project as that will see a environmentally sustainable BREEAM Excellent design replace an out-dated building and we’re excited to see what it looks like when it is completed ready for the 2019 academic year.
