Construction Enquirer News 12-storey Victoria Park building will house both Law and Humanities faculties
The University of Portsmouth has started the hunt for a contractor to design and build its planned Victoria Park major teaching building.
The 12-storey building project will be let on a single-stage design and build basis with the University hoping to make an award in January to start work in February 2022.

Once complete in 2024, the building will house the Faculty of Business & Law and part of the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.
Accommodation will also include a ground floor café and event space and restaurant on the top floor with roof terrace.
