Refurbishment and alterations to create meeting rooms and open plan spaces


University College London

Medawar Centre

 

SUMMARY / DESCRIPTION:

The project comprised the refurbishment and alterations of part of the second floor to create meeting rooms and open plan spaces for the new Medawar Centre for Biodiversity and Environmental Research.

 

Description

The old redundant laboratories were transformed into a bright, vibrant space inspired by the diverse world of animals’ flora and fauna. The works achieved Ska Gold status for sustainability, the first time for a project at University College London.

 

Challenges

The project was completed on time within a very challenging 8-week programme and incorporated significant additional works. Our management team worked very closely with the client’s consultants to ensure the design information was delivered on time to enable us to manage the programme. 

 

Outcome

We had a ‘no shocks’ policy of advising our client on progress and budget and ensured they knew our forecast final account with fortnightly updates. The Medawar Centre was completed within the client’s budget.

 

This project was delivered by our GPF Lewis Solutions Management Team
