  • Overview

This project involved the refurbishment of a Grade II listed building for University of Huddersfield which we were allocated to do under the YORBuild framework.

The building was to be converted from 12 existing residential flats to provide 6785sqft of much needed accommodation for the University. The site was a former canal warehouse and is one of Huddersfield's oldest buildings dating back to 1774.

Britcon worked for building surveyors, AHR Huddersfield acting as Project Manager. Whilst maintaining the existing listed façade. Brticon sympathetically removed the internal apartments and installed modern, open plan office accommodation over the three floors. This included structural, mechanical and engineering and finishing works.

Tim Hosker, Deputy Director of Estates at the University said; "We are pleased to have appointed Britcon which has demonstrated strong credentials in delivering inclusive refurbishment works on sensitive projects."
