As part of the framework, Morgan Sindall’s team in Durham will undertake several design, construction and refurbishment projects.
The programme includes a £3.5m redevelopment of the university’s Priestman building to accommodate various arts disciplines.
There will be significant improvements to the building infrastructure including energy efficient lighting, heating and data connections as well as a new roof and windows, continuing the university’s push to achieve its carbon reduction targets supporting sustainability both at the university and within the city.
Morgan Sindall will also build the second phase of the campus’ £6m science complex.
Gordon Ray, managing director for Morgan Sindall in the North East, said: “The higher education sector is under considerable pressure to maintain world class facilities and attract students in a financially squeezed market.
“We’re therefore delighted that in this challenging climate, our track record has seen us appointed to this framework for the second time.
