A new campus is on the cards for Anglia Polytechnic University as Wilkinson Eyre Architects gears up for a detailed application later this month.
The 14,000m 2block on a greenfield site in Chelmsford, Essex, will hug the curve of the River Chelmer. The complex, which includes sports areas, student accommodation and a landscaped square by PRP Landscape, will be surrounded by existing fields and a scattering of built-up areas.
The two-stage project is due to start next February and end in 2010. Construction costs are being finalised.
