ADP appointed to develop masterplans for the University of Cyprus in Nicosia

ADP has competed against practices from Europe, America and Canada to win the commission.

Over the next three years ADP will be developing the plans to assist the University in achieving its ambitions to create a “green” low carbon campus, increase its research work and student numbers, and to become internationally recognised as a centre of excellence in the Mediterranean region.

From its original foundation in 1989 the University has grown, with most activity concentrated on its Athalassa Campus on the southern fringes of Nicosia, working to an original plan by architects YRM. A new learning resource centre, designed by Jean Nouvel, is currently under construction.

Roger FitzGerald, ADP Chairman said: “ADP is delighted to have won this commission. The University has ambitious plans and a fabulous site, and we are thoroughly looking forward to engaging with them to develop their plans for the future”.

UCY Rector Constantinos Christofides noted: ‘We place great value in this multifaceted project and the new consultants ADP who will assist in the formulation of the required dynamics for the future growth of UCY Campus and the estates strategy of the University of Cyprus within a sustainable framework’.
