Large scale campus regeneration

The Student Life building is our latest project with Teesside University and follows our recent £6.4m project to refurbish and extend an existing 3-storey 1960s building to create the University’s Business School. We also created a unique ‘living green wall’ (below) attached to the Business School designed to create an attractive and environmentally friendly focus in the centre of the campus - adjacent to the Student Life building.

We also built a new gym, an extension to the existing Olympia health and fitness centre, as well as delivering a £5.4m project to refurbish two 1960s 10 and 11-storey blocks into contemporary student accommodation.

With all these projects procured through the Scape framework, this really is a transformative and exciting time for the university, whose masterplan is designed to further enhance the experience of all its students, staff and partners.

Malcolm Page, chief operating officer at Teesside University, said:

“The University has committed to investing £300m in its estate over the next ten years to create a campus environment which will rival any in the sector. The Student Life Building is a key development in the campus masterplan – a state-of-the-art building which will bring all student-facing activity together in one central location. We are delighted to again be working with Willmott Dixon.”
