Kier is understood to be in line for the job to build Bournemouth University’s landmark Fusion Building at its Talbot Campus.

The 60,000 sq ft four-storey on Wallisdown Road will provide specialist facilities for two of the university’s internationally renowned facilities – the Faculty of Media and Communication and the Faculty of Science and Technology.

It has been designed by Atkins to form a new visual gateway to the campus and its parkland setting.

Major infrastructure improvements, including a fourth road, a bus hub on the western edge of the site, and an extension to the car park will also be carried out.

Infrastructure works are due to complete by Easter 2018 with the new building opening in September 2019.

It forms part of a wider £100m programme to expand facilities at the university. At its Lansdowne campus there are also plans for a £40m Bournemouth Gateway Building for the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences.

As part of the Lansdowne project, Three Sixty Developments is also proposing to develop student accommodation with up to 550 beds on a separate site in Lansdowne Road at a cost of £37m.
