Shortlist revealed for Worcester campus comp

  • Comment
The University of Worcester has unveiled the shortlist in the competition to create its new city-centre campus.

Will Alsop, the Architects Design Partnership (ADP), Broadway Malyan ( pictured above) and BDP are all in the running to mastermind the overhaul of the former Worcestershire Royal Infirmary site.

Focusing on the arts, business and humanities, the £90 million campus development will include a new conference centre, a 120-seat theatre, student homes, business units and a hotel.

Project leader, the university's pro-vice chancellor, Martin Doughty said: 'This development will benefit Worcester and the wider region educationally, economically and culturally, and help the university's continued ambition to bring educational opportunities to all.'

The competition winner will be announced before Christmas and university chiefs hope the project will start on site in October next year.
