London Met University seeks long-term partner for estates overhaul

  • 22nd May 2024

The proposed works will include the revamp of the Holloway Road Tower Building in north London

London Metropolitan University has begun its hunt for a contractor to deliver a major upgrade of its estate over the next 10 years.

The university is starting contractor engagement for the wide-ranging programme of works, which will see more than £280m invested in its sites at Islington and Tower Hamlets.

Once selected, the contractor will build and deliver capital projects, lead a total facilities management service, and deliver net zero targets through sustainability in all capital projects and TFM services.

The masterplan for the main Holloway Road campus in Islington was drawn up by Design Engine Architects; consulting engineer, Buro Happold; and cost consultant, Gardiner & Theobald.

The campus plan will involve demolishing buildings to create a major courtyard space behind the award-winning Daniel Liebeskind student building in Holloway Road and a complete overhaul of the 12-storey tower next to it.

Work at the Aldgate Campus and Accelerator building will focus more on building refurbishment and upgrades.
