    Enhancing facilities for a world-leading research centre at the University of Leeds

The School of Earth and Environment’s (SEE) strong foundations as a centre of world-leading research excellence was the driving force behind their recent expansion.

The University of Leeds needed to improve the use of existing space and introduce the latest technology at their world-leading School of Earth and Environment. Now, the new facilities ensure it will remain a market-leader in student recruitment.

By developing a thorough plan and having a team committed to achieving the end goal made the project a pleasure to work on. The whole team feel a huge sense of pride and achievement at seeing the finished project.
