Project details
  • Client: University of Bristol
  • Location: Bristol
  • Role: Architecture

This two-phased project involved refurbishment of the west and south wings of the School of Chemistry. The South Wing - refurbishment of a five-storey purpose-built 1960s building including repairs to the structural frame, over-cladding with insulation and render, replacement of single glazing with solar control, double-glazed units in thermally broken frames, and extensive fire upgrade work. All of this whilst the building remained occupied. 

The West Wing was a much more complex intervention involving extensive recladding, re-rendering and reroofing to the exterior and internal refurbishment to provide two floors of brand new laboratories, a new roof-level plant room, improved circulation and new support accommodation. 

Works significantly improved the thermal efficiency of the building, in line with the University's sustainability aspirations.
