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