All this was carried out on a live and very busy existing site.

University of Bristol, CETL Chemistry Laboratories

  • Client: University of Bristol
  • Architect: Kendall Kingscott
  • Project Manager: Capita Symonds Ltd
  • Project Value: £13m

Refurbishment of two floors of existing laboratory accommodation to provide new ‘state of the art’ Chemistry Teaching facility. The project was designed and constructed within 12 months, including strip-out of the existing facility.

Dominic Anderson was the lead mechanical and electrical consultant for the demanding projects which took place above four floors of the existing building which remained in occupation throughout the contract.

Key to the success of the project was the ability to agree with the University the use of ‘low-volume’ fume cupboards. This not only reduced the University’s energy consumption but also enabled the ventilation systems to be installed with the minimum of disruption to other departments within the building.
