Jubilee Project, Grey College, Durham

Client Durham University

Architect GSS Architects

Completion January 2012

Value - 495,000

We secured a contract to construct two extensions at Grey College for Durham University. The first extension was to the Junior Common Room on the Hollingside Building and the second was to the Library on Holgate Building. Both extensions ran in tandem with each other and the works were carried out on as live site with students living and working adjacent. The Library project also included the installation of a mobile storage shelving system for the books.

Both extensions were completed on time and a second phase for the replacement of further windows on the Hollingside Building was negotiated a few months later and the works were carried out during the summer break.
