£700K refurb for Cambridge College
Wolfson College occupies a single, nine acre site, and accommodates up to 450 students.
Last year’s project, also completed by Keepmoat, saw the complete strip out and refurbishment of 22 bedrooms, 13 of which had en-suite shower rooms, two communal kitchens, two shared bathrooms and shower rooms, and upgrades to two heating plant rooms.
The 2017 scheme includes the refurbishment of three blocks of accommodation, totalling 33 bedrooms and three communal kitchens.
Refurbishment also involves window replacement and improvements to the existing fire alarm system.
Simon Lacey, Regional Managing Director for Keepmoat, said: “Keepmoat is delighted to be establishing itself as a preferred partner with Wolfson College, with the 2017 programme of work negotiated with the partnership rather than being tendered to open market.
“Our extensive refurbishment work, which preserves the rich history of a campus enriched with tradition, serves as testament to the wide-ranging, adaptable and high quality regeneration solutions that Keepmoat can offer.”
The project is planned to begin over the summer university break, starting at the end of June and concluding mid-September, just in time for the start of the new academic year.
