£86m contest for landmark Portsmouth Uni project

The University of Portsmouth has started the hunt for a contractor to design and build its planned Victoria Park major teaching building.

The 12-storey building project will be let on a single-stage design and build basis with the University hoping to make an award in January to start work in February 2022.

Designs by architect Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and MEP consultant Buro Happold have been developed to RIBA Design Stage 4. These are targeting a top BREEAM rating of ‘Outstanding’.

Photovoltaic panels cover the angled roof, producing renewable power and a high performing façade will manage heat and light.

Park Room – view into social learning landings

Once complete in 2024, the building will house the Faculty of Business & Law and part of the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Accommodation will also include a ground floor café and event space and restaurant on the top floor with roof terrace.
