Hamilton Transform Canterbury City Campus In £47m Education Project

Canterbury Story
Hamilton Architects have landed the contract for the delivery of a £47m project which will help transform the City Campus for Canterbury Christ Church University.

Hamilton will carry out the design and enabling works for an 18,000sqm state of the art Science, Engineering, Technology and Health teaching facility, one of three new buildings planned for the old Prison Quarter site. Building work on the STEM facility, currently known as Building 2, is currently onsite with a delivery date of 2020, but the overall redevelopment of the university estate will take up to 15 years to complete at a cost of over £150m. The practice won the contract to deliver this prestigious project against stiff national competition and it is one of 18 education projects, valued at over £150m, currently on Hamilton’s books.

Hamilton have forged a partnership with Canterbury architecture practice Hazle McCormack Young and will be working with Gilbert-Ash as main contractor and Edmond Shipway as QS.
