Building starts on £57m Oxford medical
Published: 05 August, 2011
OXFORD: Local councillors have approved plans to build new Oxford University Research buildings in the city.
Three buildings need to be demolished to make way for the new buildings and construction work is scheduled to begin in October for a 2013 opening.
Mace is reported to be the front-runner to take the £57m project to build two new medical facilities at the University's Old Road Campus, by the Churchill Hospital in Headington.
If confirmed successful, the firm will build a £20m Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine and a £37m Institute for Rheumatology.
Mace, which is bidding the job alongside several other rivals including Laing O'Rourke, is understood to have had its Bills called in first.
