Teaching Space Refurbishment

Location: Old Medical School, University of Edinburgh

Summary: Internal refurbishment works to teaching spaces

Description of Works: Refurbishment of 10 existing teaching spaces within the University’s old Medical School, a Grade B listed city centre building, which remained operational throughout the works.

Works included:

  • minor demolition and strip-out
  • partition walls
  • supply and installation of new air conditioning system
  • new M&E installations including power, lighting, data comms, AV equipment and ventilation
  • new wall linings and wall finishes
  • internal doors and doorsets
  • painterwork
  • flooring including carpet tiles
  • new ceilings including suspended and plasterboard ceilings and finishes
  • fixtures and fittings including notice boards and roller blinds

Added Value

  • There were a number of days where works were prohibited within certain rooms due to exams and an open day.
  • To control the spread of dust we used ‘Protec’ products (zip wall, zip door & tacky mat) which allowed work zones to be segregated whilst allowing easy access to site staff.

This important and challenging project

“This important and challenging project has been completed quietly, efficiently and professionally without any fuss."

Well done

“Well done in completing the first phase of the works, on programme and with zero snagging. The client is delighted with the end product which has exceeded their expectations.”

The building is impressive

"I would like to pass on the thanks of the whole school to everyone involved in what was a well-managed, well communicated and safely delivered project.”

The handover of Phase 2

“The handover of Phase 2 a day early has assisted the client to better manage their move management on two projects which occur over the same weekend, an effort which is greatly appreciated.”
