Project Description

The project consisted of the complete refurbishment of 42 student apartments to provide contemporary living. The work included new boilers, electrical rewiring, new kitchens & bathrooms, decoration & floor coverings.

Challenges

The two blocks had been left empty for two years and had suffered vandalism including gas pipes and radiators stolen.Also the asbestos removal specialist had removed the lighting, leaving insufficient cable to reconnect. The building was extremely damp and suffering from excessive mould growth.All these issues had to be addressed within a very tight contract period in order to ensure handover was achieved by the end of August.
