McLaren Construction secures £38m Brighton College contract



McLaren Construction has been awarded a £38m contract to design and construct a new sports and science facility for Brighton College.

The project – which was designed by Dutch architect OMA – will involve the demolition of existing buildings and the construction of a new four-storey development.

This latest contract marks the third major project Brighton College has awarded to McLaren in the last five years.

Peter Jackson, group contracts director at McLaren, said: ‘’We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this project which continues our fantastic working relationship with Brighton College.

“Construction will commence following the successful completion of the current academic building in August 2017 and we look forward to working alongside the architects OMA and the college to deliver the new sports and science building.’’

The new building will include a swimming pool in the basement and underground parking for the college’s fleet of minibuses.

Its ground floor will feature a cafe, sports viewing area and gymnasium, as well as a sports hall and an indoor sprint running track.

Upper floors will hold laboratories for all core sciences, and the rooftop amenity space will boast another running track.

The project – which has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating – is expected to start in July and will be completed by the end of 2019.
