On behalf of Durham University, DPP’s Newcastle office has secured planning consent for a new £40m high-class, state-of-the-art teaching and learning facility as part of its proposed Estate Masterplan over the next ten years.
The facility will be a central part of the University’s estate, and as well as providing additional lecture theatres, classrooms, seminar rooms, catering facilities, education labs, breakout spaces and student learning zones, it will also support conference facilities for around 500 people during University vacation periods.
Faith Folley, DPP’s Newcastle director said;
“We’re really pleased to have helped the University secure permission on such an exciting project. We look forward to helping deliver their masterplan vision, which will enable them to build on their existing £650m contribution the institution already makes to the North East, and the 10,000 jobs it supports locally.”
