FAQS

What is the benefit of all the estates work to students?

Engineering has an excellent reputation and is committed to giving students the best possible experience and facilities while they are here. The new builds will address the concerns of current students about the quality of the teaching facilities currently available to them. Future students will gain additional state-of-the-art lecture theatres, flexible teaching spaces and student-led, flexible learning space. Students in the Faculty benefit from shared learning spaces and opportunities to work in multidisciplinary groups. This prepares them for professional practice as an Engineer. In order to continue and increase this type of learning, more space and facilities are needed.

As building work progresses there may be some disruption to present facilities and re-timetabling and moving to different buildings may be necessary. The University will do its best to minimise disruption to the student experience and provide timely information on any works that affect lectures. Students are already being consulted regarding the new facilities and will continue to be included in the plans for the future of the Faculty of Engineering. Our students input and views are valued.

How will staff in Engineering and nearby be affected by the building work?

There will be some disruption during building work, but the University will strive both to minimise this and plan it around the core business of delivering teaching and research. This will be done in a fully consultative way. Some movement of staff will be necessary to enable the refurbishment, but it is hoped that this short-term disruption will be a price worth paying for the improvement in their working environment.

How will students around the buildings involved be affected?

As building work progresses there may be some disruption to present facilities and re-timetabling and moving to different buildings may be necessary. The University will do its best to minimise disruption to the student experience and provide timely information on any works that affect lectures.

When did construction start/ end?

The St. George's Campus Refurbishment work is a 5 year programme due for completion in 2018.
Phase 1 works commenced in June, 2013 and are due to be completed by May, 2014.

Who is the main contractor for the refurbishment?

Miller Construction (UK) are the contractor for Phase 1 of the refurbishment programme.

What are the working hours of the contractors?

Construction work generally occurs between 8 am - 6 pm on weekdays. Weekend work would be on Saturdays between 8 am - 1 pm if required. Deliveries or vehicle movements may occur outside of these times e.g. before 8 am to avoid busy traffic times. There can however, be evening/night works and Sunday shifts depending on the specific project especially to collect waste materials and for services alterations.

Who is the architect for the refurbishment?

The architects for Phase 1 of the refurbishment programme are Bond Bryan Architects.

Project Information: Scope of Works

A major refurbishment programme for the St George’s Campus that will help us to accommodate our growth and also to dramatically improve the current condition of our working environment.

The refurbishment will cover the quadrangle bounded by Mappin Street, Portobello Street, Newcastle Street and Broad Lane. The £53 million project is split into 6 phases over five years covering approximately 12, 000m2 of space with the objective to accommodate departmental staff and research labs as well as creating an atrium space for circulation and collaboration.

Phase 1 is the refurbishment of floors A& B (part) and M in the Sir Robert Hadfield Building along with the window replacement in the tower. Broad Lane is the relocation of the engineering workshop and the creation of 6 new offices and a cycle shower room, along with the refurbishment of the materials structures lab. There is also an installation of a new campus infrastructure for heating distribution, hot & cold water distribution and new fibre optic data network.

Sir Robert Hadfield Building

Roof Top Plant Project

This was an abatement project of the two roof top plant rooms on the top of the Hadfield building.  This included the partial demolition of one room and the complete demolition of the smaller room. There were also associated cladding and reported works, along with the stripping out of redundant services in the plant rooms.

There was also some works to floors G, I and J where there had been problems with ventilation and this was fixed as part of the project.

The appointed contractor was Jarvale Construction Ltd.
