University of Hull – Refurbishment of The Lawns consisting of Nicholson, Lambert, Grant and Revitt Halls of Residence.
Services Design Associates were appointed by the University of Hull to carry out the design and administration of the mechanical and electrical services associated with the total refurbishment of The Lawns student accommodation. This is a large, grade II listed, complex comprising four blocks originally constructed in 1968. The works were undertaken over three years in the summer recesses in order to ensure that the student accommodation was available during normal term time.
SDA worked closely with the University and the appointed contractor to develop works programmes to ensure that the accommodation was available during the normal term. As the work progressed SDA attended site on a regular basis to evaluate the contractor’s performance and to oversee stage commissioning. SDA provided input to the overall construction phase of the works. As each phase of the works approached completion, SDA liaised with the contractor to ensure that the record drawings, operating and maintenance manuals, building log books etc. were all prepared to standard.
