Description
The University for the Creative Arts is seeking Expressions of Interest from innovative, architect-led multi-disciplinary design teams for the proposed redevelopment of the Business School for the Creative Industries at its Epsom campus in Surrey. The School is a unique concept that will seek to provide an environment in which the beauty and free expression of art can mix effortlessly with the rational sobriety of the business world. This fusion of the creative industries and business has the goal of becoming the place where the next generation of arts entrepreneurs meet, create and turn ideas into sound business models. The University has identified a construction budget of GBP £15.311m (excluding fees, FF&E, contingency and VAT) for a c.3,895m2 GIA new building on the site. The intention is to supplement the current Business School facility (accommodated in an existing building known as the ‘Market Place’) with a connecting new-build Business School. The existing Market Place will be reconfigured to ensure optimal use of space for the Business School across both buildings. The University has identified a provisional circa 10% allowance for professional/ statutory fees, surveys and investigations.
