McAlpine signs deal for £500m University of Bristol campus

The new campus on the former Royal Mail sorting office site next to Temple Meads Station is due to open in 2026 and will be home to 4,600 students and 650 university staff.

Professor Evelyn Welch, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Bristol, said: “Today really is a landmark day – not just for the University of Bristol but for the city as a whole.

“The Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus has been designed to meet the needs and nurture the aspirations of our students, staff and partners across the city and the wider region.

“It provides outstanding facilities to build on our collective strengths in research, innovation, learning and societal change. We are delighted to be working with Sir Robert McAlpine to bring these new facilities to life.”

Sir Andrew McAlpine, Partner at Sir Robert McAlpine, added: “Our teams of experts take pride in delivering outstanding facilities and making a long-lasting, positive impact on local communities for future generations.”

AECOM has supported the Temple Quarter programme since 2017, working as the University of Bristol’s project and cost consultants. They will continue to support the University through the construction of the new campus.

Osborne Clarke advised the University on the construction procurement and contracts for the projects.
