ADP scoops Cyprus university expansion job

  • Comment

ADP has won an international contest to overhaul and expand the University of Cyprus (UCY) in Nicosia

The AJ100 firm defeated rival unnamed firms from Europe, America and Canada to win the high-profile commission.

The three-year appointment will deliver a new estates strategy and masterplan for the university’s growing Athalassa Campus on the southern fringes of Cypriot capital.

The masterplan will boost student numbers, increase research work, deliver a new ‘green’ low carbon campus and establish UCY as an ‘internationally recognised centre of excellence in the Mediterranean region.’

ADP chair Roger FitzGerald said: ‘ADP is delighted to have won this commission. The university has ambitious plans and a fabulous site, and we are thoroughly looking forward to engaging with them to develop their plans for the future.’

UCY rector Constantinos Christofides added: ‘We place great value in this multifaceted project and the new consultants ADP who will assist in the formulation of the required dynamics for the future growth of UCY Campus and the estates strategy of the University of Cyprus within a sustainable framework.’

Set up in 1989, the university now hosts around 7,000 students on a campus based on an original masterplan by YRM.

A new £22 million library designed by Jean Nouvel is currently under construction and planned to complete later this year.
