International property and construction consultancy, Gleeds, is pleased to announce that work has begun on-site constructing a new £15 million teaching facility at the University of Nottingham. Gleeds will be providing project management services for the development which was commissioned as part of a £500 million capital investment plan.

Designed by award-winning architectural practice, Make, the project will see a 5,000m2 teaching facility built at the University Park campus. The site is widely regarded as one of the most attractive in the country and is the largest of four campuses, which cover a total area of over 300 acres. The new building will be situated adjacent to the award-winning Hallward Library and will comprise a range of teaching facilities, as well as staff and student amenities.

James Marshall, Gleeds director based in Nottingham, commented: “The new facilities seek to provide an improved educational experience and, once complete, will help to attract both national and international students to the city of Nottingham. We are delighted to be involved in this project and look forward to see the ambitious plans come to fruition.”

David Patterson, Partner at Make added: “This will be a beautiful building on a beautiful campus. We are aiming to create an inspiring environment for both students and teachers and one which will accommodate current and future demands for light, vibrant, student-focused spaces.”

Construction is due to complete by the end of 2017.
