Teesside University

Darlington Campus, Teesside University

Following a successful previous project for Teesside University at Centuria South, CPMG and Morgan Ashurst were appointed to develop and construct this new academic building for the same client in Darlington.

With a contract value of £7.5m, the project was a 4,000 square metre development over five storeys (including a roof terrace), with associated infrastructure and external works. The building’s primary purpose is teaching, business development and shared learning. It also incorporates a library, double-height café space, staff facilities and independent entrances for students and corporate users. Situated on a brown field site next to the main East Coast rail line, the project posed a number of technical challenges, particularly in terms of acoustics.
