The refurbishment has been phased over 15 years in line with the University’s capital programme and funding. The coherent unified appearance has been made possible by d+b’s innovative system and design expertise enabling individual panels to be individually demountable and elevational treatments modified at later dates permitting seamless integration of all elevations into a complete building envelope.

“The project now successfully completed, follows Property Services’ successful application for £3.5m in funding from the Government’s Salix Finance scheme, which provides funding to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills. The work hugely improves the thermal comfort levels for building users through high levels of insulation and will also help drive down future energy costs and our reliance on gas and the grid.”
