Work begins on University of Leeds SEE building

This month saw the start of expansion works on the School of Earth and Environment (SEE) building at the University of Leeds.

One of the largest and most vibrant schools in the country, the students can undertake a wide range of courses, from geology and geophysics, environmental science, meteorology and climate science, to environmental social science.

With an expected duration of 35 weeks, the design and build project will involve the renovation of three floors in the building, with works including the demolition and removal of internal partitions, fitting out works, construction of new walls and suspended ceilings. Externally, a new concrete retaining wall will be built, along with a cycle and refuse store and secure steel bollards. Work on the building is expected to complete in Summer 2018.

We are really pleased to be undertaking this project for the University of Leeds and we are looking forward to work starting on site. We expect this will be the beginning of a long term working relationship with the university who are a new client to us.
