PROJECT OVERVIEW

The University of Reading enlisted our help with de-commissioning part of a 1960’s built research faculty at their Whiteknights campus. As well as designing the refurbishment of the basement, ground and first floors, duties also included a survey of the existing structure which brought about the recognition of high levels of asbestos. All works were carried out whilst retaining the existing services and infrastructure to the Bio-science lab, science museum, refectory, lower floors, roof area and all fire escapes.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Our duties involved the construction of a new nursery block, the refurbishment and expansion of an existing arts block, demolition of existing teaching buildings, construction of a new teaching building, and renewal of the site utilities infrastructure. The project was centred on a fixed budget and space requirement, with very tight deadlines that has to adhere to secure funding. Speed of response by the team as a whole and value engineering were a very important aspect of the project. Natural ventilation with minimum mechanical assistance where necessary was a major feature of the design.
