The refurbishment of the existing 5-storey office
building on Hills Road in Cambridge was carried out in 2003. The client, The
Master and Fellows of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge required the whole
building to be refurbished to modern standards and the works included a new
roof level plant room and external works including a new entrance bridge,
new electric sub-station and landscaping.
The original early 70ís building
was stripped back to its concrete frame and floors including the removal of
all existing cladding and windows. The refurbishment works included all new
services, external cladding and new aluminium double glazed window units
incorporating fixed louver solar control. The new entrance foyer features
glazed curtain walling and is accessed via the new bridge.
