The University of Hull has selected Interserve Construction to deliver new teaching and research facilities for the Hull York Medical School.

Planned works involve a 5-storey 70,000 sq ft new build and the refurbishment of existing buildings on the west side of the University of Hull main campus.

The new Health Campus Building will provide specialised medical teaching facilities including a full mock hospital ward, operating theatre and intensive care nursing facilities.

In addition to providing extensive collaborative working areas for researchers, post graduate and undergraduate students, the building will house a large lecture theatre, a think pod and ‘green roofs’ with external terrace areas.

The refurbishment of Loxley building will extend the Anatomy Department and significantly enhance the internal environment.

Later phases of the project will include some refurbishment to existing Aire, Dearne & Calder Buildings, together with improvements to the West Campus hard and soft landscaping to develop the East/West route into a major campus thoroughfare.
