Contractor is awarded £3.7m contract to refurbish Grade II listed building at University of Bristol

Contractor Bluestone has been awarded a £3.7m contract to refurbish part of the University of Bristol’s Physics labs.

The labs, which are Grade II listed, will be updated and the outside of the building and the windows will be refurbished. This will involve Bluestone working on removing dark carbon deposits from the stonework and replacing the glass in some of the windows.

Bluestone will refurbish 15 laboratories and teaching rooms on the second floor while teaching will continue on the first and third floors.

The project is due to be completed in Autumn.
