University of Northumbria
JCT Design & Build Contract 2016
Esh Build constructed a new extension building within the courtyard of the Grade II listed Sutherland Building to create studio space across two levels with an atrium connecting the two buildings.
The scheme provides over 2,500msq of studio space, a student hub and academic staff offices.
Enabling works were completed ensuring the Sutherland Building remained live. This involved the installation of a new power supply and temporary heating works to the existing building and the existing services building demolished along with a gatehouse building previously used by security.
The connections to the services were never lost within the building ensuring that students and staff could continue to function during the construction.
