The new building will provide sport and physical activity space for all students and staff at the university.
The four-storey steel-framed building will house two sports halls, three fitness studios, a health and well-being gym, a strength and conditioning high performance gym.
The scheme will also include an underground car parking facility.
Morgan Sindall has mobilised its project team on site and aims to complete by Summer of 2019. The building will be located next to the Spark building on the university’s East Park Terrace Campus.
Andy Duff, managing director at Morgan Sindall in the South, said the scheme was the contractor’s eleventh project win under the Southern Construction Framework.
