Willmott Dixon has won a £20m contract for a comprehensive redevelopment of Warwick University’s central campus.

The scheme, which has been procured through Scape’s National Major Works Framework will see Willmott Dixon build a new facility with space for a 250-seat and 500-seat lecture theatres alongside new teaching and seminar space.

The firm is working architects Guedes Stretton on the project, which is expected to be completed in July 2016.

Peter Owen, managing director at Willmott Dixon in the Midlands said: “Our recent experience in higher education includes the new Curzon Building at Birmingham City University and we’ll be using our experience of working in live environments to ensure we create a centrepiece for Warwick that will provide an excellent learning environment for many generations to come.

“This will deliver a thriving new central facility for staff and students as well as a striking building architecturally that will be memorable for all visitors.”
