Faithful+Gould has been appointed to manage the £45m development of University of Salford’s new engineering building.
The project will be the first to be delivered as part of the university and Salford City Council’s joint £800m masterplan and will involve the creation of innovative areas of excellence based on a student- centred approach to teaching and learning.
SNC-Lavalin acquired Faithful+Gould, as part of WS Atkins plc last July. Dan Cadman, regional director of SNC-Lavalin’s Faithful+Gould business, said: “The new masterplan will set the benchmark for future development and this project will act as a best practice model for collaboration, social value and early contractor involvement, both for future developments at Salford and other projects in the wider higher education sector.”
The building will strengthen alliances with industry partners, as well as providing state of the art collaborative facilities for University of Salford students.
Professor Helen Marshall, vice chancellor of the University of Salford, said: “Our exciting masterplan development will enable us to carry out the industry-led teaching and research that is key to our strategic aims of preparing our graduates for the modern world of work and delivering economic growth for Salford, Greater Manchester and beyond.”
The Design and Build project will have a fully contractor led design team beginning at RIBA Stage 1.
Faithful+Gould will act as NEC project managers and cost advisors after being appointed via the Pagabo Professional Services in Construction and Premises public sector framework.
