Established construction contractor, Henry Brothers, announces the completion of a multi-million-pound scheme to refurbish and upgrade two key buildings at Loughborough University.
The £30m scheme was one of the largest refurbishment projects ever carried out at the university, comprising of a painstaking 19 different phases, taking more than two years to complete.
The extensive refurbishment included both the ‘W’ and ‘S’ buildings in the West Park area of Loughborough University’s campus, as well as upgrading labs, offices, lecture theatres and more.
Henry Brothers Midlands managing director Ian Taylor said: “Every member of the team involved in the refurbishment of the W and S buildings can be truly proud of what has been achieved at this site. It really is a top-class refurbishment scheme which has transformed a pair of 1960s buildings into two high-quality facilities, which are a fantastic environment in which to research, teach and learn.
“When working in a live environment, there are, naturally constraints, but in close conjunction with Loughborough University, the work was carefully planned to avoid disruption to the students’ studies. On occasions, this meant using a non-traditional construction approach.
“The team at Henry Brothers is absolutely delighted to have handed over two outstanding facilities, on time and within budget, following this extensive and challenging refurbishment project, which has been successfully carried out over more than two years and which has now provided an environment for students, researchers and staff that really is inspirational.”
