University College Falmouth (UCF) and the University of Exeter (UoE) have announced the appointment of UK contractor, Leadbitter Group, to undertake the next phase of development at the Tremough Campus in Penryn.

With a combined value of £49 million, the contract will include the construction of three major projects – UCF’s Academy for Innovation & Research (AIR), UoE’s Environment and Sustainability Institute, and The Exchange.

The projects – which are all supported by substantial Convergence investment – represent a further significant phase of development at the Tremough, in line with the institutions’ vision to create a world class campus for Cornwall.

The Leadbitter Group is also the contractor for Cornwall Council’s Tremough Innovation Centre (TIC), which is being constructed on land adjacent to the Tremough Campus, due for completion this autumn.


The Cornwall Development Company and UK Trade and Investment are seeking professional services companies to make up a preferred suppliers list for investor services.
