Construction tops out on Campus Whitehaven, UK

Construction of the £30 million Campus Whitehaven in Cumbria, UK, has successfully topped out. Mott MacDonald is providing multidisciplinary advice to Cumbria County Council on the project, which will provide new modern learning facilities for students from Mayfield School and St Benedict’s Roman Catholic High School.

Located on the current St Benedict’s site, the new campus will replace existing buildings, radically improving the teaching and learning environment and creating the potential for boosting students’ aspirations and accomplishments. The project also includes new sports amenities on the campus site which will be available to the local community. This is part of an approach aimed at improving the health and well-being of the local community, as well as education provision.

Mott MacDonald assisted with the procurement of the design and build contractor Wates Construction, monitored design development, provided facilities management services and undertook contract administration. The consultancy has a long-standing relationship with Cumbria County Council, being part of their supply chain since the formation of its first Professional Services Framework in 2010.

Martyn Frackelton, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “This project is helping invest in the future of West Cumbria, making sure that there is the knowledge, skills and health in the community to get the most from the opportunities presented by the anticipated growth of the nuclear and renewables industries.”

Construction of Campus Whitehaven is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2019. Investment has been provided from a range of partners, including The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Sellafield Ltd, Copeland Community Fund and Cumbria County Council.
