Willmott Dixon has won three contracts worth more than £60m to upgrade three universities in the Midlands.

The largest contract is a £36m sports hub (pictured) for University of Warwick, while at nearby Coventry University, the firm secured a £15m deal for a low-carbon technology centre, where car manufacturers will test the next generation of engines.

And at the University of Birmingham, the company has also been selected for two projects worth £15 million to create a performance/leisure space called ‘The Green Heart’, along with a new data centre.

Peter Owen, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the Midlands, said: “Our work at Warwick, Coventry and Birmingham will help all three attract the best students, academics and businesses to study and work in collaboration.

“This will further boost the Midlands economy, a clear sign of investing in the future with HS2 on the horizon.”
