Refurbishment of Lecture Theatres
Project Duration:
15 Weeks

We have recently completed the refurbishment of two lecture theatres for the University of Leicester in the Bennett Building.

Working under a standard JCT contract we worked closely with Moss Architecture . Interiors Ltd to achieve the successful completion of the two theatres. Comprising of a highly detailed and complex fast track project operating in a live and occupied building across all floor levels. This project represented a considerable delivery challenge requiring us to meet guaranteed programme end dates.

In order to minimise disruption, we made the decision as ‘principal contractor’ to establish an internal hoarding to separate us from the staff and students on the university grounds. Once this was completed, due to access being limited on site, we agreed with the university to remove a window from both lecture theatres to allow us to bring materials into the building.
