The University of Warwick has submitted hybrid plans for the next phase of its campus development involving nine new projects.

The largest projects being submitted for detailed planning include a £54m Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building and £33m new Faculty of Arts building.

Outline planning has been submitted for the seven other projects including new student residences with up to 1,000 beds and a multi-storey car park at the Gibbet Hall campus to relieve pressure on Warwick Medical School and the School of Life Sciences and helping to address car parking issues on local residential roads.

Subject to planning, work is expected to start on the landmark biomedial and arts buildings in early 2019.

The IBRB, known as project 7, will bring together up to 300 biomedical researchers from across the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School to fight human diseases.

Hawkins Brown designed biomedical building

BAM, Kier, Graham, Morgan Sindall and Willmott Dixon are in the running for the project, which is to be built at Gibbet Hill in Coventry

The student experience for undergraduates and postgraduates will be enriched through the provision of a new 400-seat lecture theatre and many new social and collaboration spaces.

Architect Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has designed the new Faculty of Arts Building which will be located at the Central Campus and will unite departments currently housed in two separate buildings.

Kier, Galliford Try and Bowmer & Kirkland are understood to be in the bidding for this project with tenders due to be submitted in October.

Turner & Townsend is quantity surveyor and Buro Happold the structural consultant for the new arts building.
