Austrian contractor Strabag's subsidiary Züblin has won a €100 million contract to build campus for Hamm-Lippstadt University in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
German federal state-owned developer Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW awarded the contract, which involves construction of lecture halls, laboratories, administration buildings and dining halls.
The project will see a total of 59,000m² gross floor area built over two different construction sites -38,000m² of gross floor area will be built at the Hamm Campus and 21,000m² at Lippstadt.
Strabag said three-to-four-storey buildings would be built as part of the contract and would be constructed for the most part as steel-and-concrete structures with facing brick façades and aluminium ribbon windows
The two campuses offer enough places for about 2,500 students.
