Jesus College in Oxford has appointed BAM to deliver the redevelopment of its £36 million Northgate site.
Preparatory works are underway already, and the new facilities will expand and enhance the College, at the 1960s structure, to create “a public gateway to the College in the heart of the city.”
Among the new facilities are new teaching space including a lecture theatre and a library, meeting and social space, 68 new student rooms, and a state of the art digital hub. MICA Architects has led the design, which also includes refurbishment of retail space in Market Street and Cornmarket.
BAM’s appointment follows a strong competitive tender.
