The second contract is for a mixed-use facility, which will provide nearly 340 student rooms, includes design of a 19-storey tower coated with zinc and is due for completion in early 2013.

The third contract is for a 300,000ft² office, which will feature green-terraced roof garden tiers stepping back from the Barbican.
