Interserve wins a £17m development project at York University.
Interserve has won a £17m contract to design and build a three-storey development at the University of York's Campus East.
The new Piazza Learning Centre will house teaching facilities and learning spaces, as part of a £27m scheme on the campus.
It is Interserve's second project with the University of York and will feature 36 flexible learning spaces, including two laboratories, a 350-seat auditorium, a 100-seat lecture theatre, large restaurant and offices spread across 70,000 sq. ft.
The new building will be used by the University's International Pathway College, as well as providing additional teaching space for Campus East.
The International Pathway College, a joint venture between the University of York and Kaplan, provides academic preparation programmes for international students prior to them progressing to their undergraduate and postgraduate studies within the University.
Work starts this week on site with groundworks starting next month. Interserve hopes to achieve a BREEAM 'Very Good' rating for the project.
