Refurbishment of unit 302

Trinity College, Cambridge

The project required significant design input to rejuvenate a tired and dilapidated building at the expiry of a 25-year lease and improve the base build specification to current occupier standards. The building dates back to the late 1980s and as such there were a number of areas of Statutory Requirements and risk considerations which required careful consideration and implementation before the building could be refurbished and re-occupied.


 What we did

  • Fully ascertained and budgeted the design and specification of works 

  • Managed the competitive single stage tendering process on behalf of the client • Undertook the full contract administration of the project 

  • Managed the team of internal and external consultants 

  • Created increased lettable floor area by the careful reconfiguration of the central toilet core and stairwells

  • Managed the dilapidations process with the outgoing tenant and came forward as a project through the detailed strategic advice given to the client 

  • Created a modern, open place office space by relocating the central core and introducing raised access floors, reconfiguring the WCs and installing a new feature staircase internally to improve the dynamic and usability of the space

  • Upgraded the existing M&E installation throughout the building with new VRF heating, air conditioning systems and upgraded ceilings and LED lighting 

  • Facelifted the external façade of the building via the introduction of modern aluminium glazing and rooftop windcatchers, which also provided natural fresh air to the building in addition to improving the external appearance



  • The project was successfully completed within budget and in accordance with the brief to deliver a high quality refurbished building with an extended life span
