The project comprised the full refurbishment of the existing 66 bedrooms, kitchens, 348 self-contained bedrooms within cluster flats, and all the existing communal areas over 6 floors. The scope entailed the full strip out of all fixed and loose equipment including fitted kitchens, bedrooms, ceilings and floor coverings.
All areas were then fully refurbished with new ceilings, decorations, floor coverings, 66 fitted kitchens, 348 fitted bedrooms, FF&E and white goods. At the same time, a full LED lighting upgrade was undertaken to the whole building and the electric heating system was upgraded with prefect controllers. A later addition to the works was the creation of a new reception to the ground floor entrance and creation of 2 study rooms, that were completed in the closing weeks of the project.
The project was a great success, with practical completion granted 8 days early.
