Firm wanted for £77m Cumbria Uni Citadel project

The hunt is starting for a design and build contractor to transform the Grade 1 listed Citadel buildings into a new Carlisle city centre campus for the University of Cumbria.

The £77m project proposes a comprehensive redevelopment of the adjacent site led by the delivery of the new 13,800 sqm campus for the University of Cumbria as the anchor occupier with associated leisure and cultural elements to increase vitality into the city centre.

It is being developed jointly by Cumbria County Council, Carlisle City Council and the University of Cumbria working with Cumbria LEP as a key partner.

As part of the planned transformation of the Citadel, demolition has just started on Paton House Buildings at the rear of the site.

Demolition of the Paton House buildings is a key part of setting the groundworks for the ambitious city centre redevelopment project.
