Not only did the University want to make better use of the useable space within Senate House, creating a modern work environment conducive to improved human performance and the free-flow of ideas was an overarching objective.
How we helped
Following the success of a £30,000 refurbishment job at Senate House, the University of Bristol's administrative headquarters, 12-months on and £750,000 later we complete our 4th project; this time an extensive office refurbishment and move management programme across multiple floors for 200 University staff.
As principal contractor and with a week to mobilise, planning and resourcing the right internal teams and supply chains were critical to the success for delivering the project to an accelerated programme of just 11-weeks.
Our work involved the strip out of cellular offices, mechanical & electrical installations and blockwork, and the fit-out of modern, open-plan workspaces throughout the three floors, combined with meeting rooms, boardrooms, server rooms and reception areas, and a full refurbishment of the existing kitchens, WCs and tea points.
The fit-out followed consultation with the University as the briefing to involve staff in the move management process; with them moving to the opposite wing of the building, then back again on completion of the work.
Resourcing the work involved an average of 20, (40 at peak times), multi-skilled and directly employed tradespeople combined with subcontractor support for specialist elements, working extended hours 7-days a week to deliver the programme on time and to the specified quality and budget as the minimum standard.

Project management and delivery of a logistically complex office refurbishment and move management programme within a heavily occupied building.
The result is the transformation of cellular offices to create a spacious and modern, open plan environment that’s conducive to improved human performance, greater productivity and improved communication among University staff.
