Consultant appointed project manager, QS and planning supervisor on £17m scheme
Working with contractor HBG, the consultant will be involved in the construction of a new academic facility on the site of the former 4 West building, now mainly demolished. The front of 4 West will be retained, and refurbished as part of the scheme.
In addition, work will begin on five new floors of teaching space which will accommodate the mathematics, computer science and humanities departments.
The main focus will be on the eco-aspects of construction. It is hoped that the building will achieve the top BREEAM rating.
Work began in early September, with completion date expected to be in June 2009.
