News Shepherd Construction Wins £17m Deal University York

Shepherd Construction has won a £1.7m contract to design and refurbish a computer science building for the University of York.

The contractor is already on-site at the Heslington Campus, undertaking a £14m project to refurbish and modernise the 603.8 sq m J B Morrell Library for the university.

This new contract, which is due to start on-site on University Road later this month, will refurbish the existing three-storey building, converting it into a modern learning  and research facility called the Harry Fairhurst Library, and provide a ground floor link to the adjacent J B Morrell Library.

The project is expected to be completed by April 2011.

Colin Sargeant, Shepherd Construction’s managing director for the East Division said: “It is great to have secured a further project with the University on the back of our current work at the Library, and having completed the development at Goodricke College last year. We look forward to continuing the relationship with the university which has already spanned several decades.”
