University science project for HBG

HBG Construction has been awarded a £23 million design, management and construct contract by the University of Sheffield.

The project involves construction of a new building within the existing campus quadrangle, and refurbishment of two further buildings to create research laboratory accommodation for the University’s Integrated Research in Molecular Life Sciences. Set to start in March 2002 with completion in December 2003, the project is joint-funded by the Wellcome Trust, HEFCE and the University.

HBG Construction is currently working at six other English universities – Birmingham, Hull, Lancaster, Liverpool, Wolverhampton, and York – demonstrating significant expertise in the higher education sector.

Working with HBG at Sheffield will be architect Bond Bryan Partnership, quantity surveyor Citex Bucknall Austin, services engineer Waterman Gore, structural engineer Eastwood and Partners, and project manager AYH.
