Briggs & Forrester Special Projects have recently completed the basement refurbishment at the Robert Hooke Building, University of Oxford.
Special Projects were appointed as a Principal Contractor and delivered the full MEP services installation along with all builders works. The main works undertaken included the internal refurbishment of the existing basement, converting the space into a high quality laboratory facility with 4No. rooms, each with their own requirements.
Working with our in house build team, the extensive build packages included creation of new door apertures, complete joinery packages, new partition walls, specialised ceiling installations, secondary glazing, vinyl flooring and plastering and decorating throughout.
The services included the strip-out, incoming supply, main switch panel, sub main cabling, distribution boards, DX refrigerant air conditioning, domestic water, laboratory water services, fume extract, mechanical supply ventilation, natural and specialist gas, oxygen depletion/enrichment alarm and above ground drainage.
Tim Cunningham, Managing Director said: “We are proud to have delivered this high quality facility for the University. The project demonstrates our capabilities working as Principal Contractor and our team are commended for their collaborative approach, working to demanding deadlines and overcoming the challenges of a highly constrained site location.”
