BSP Consulting was part of the team involved in the Loughborough University W&S Building £30m refurbishment scheme, to upgrade two key buildings at Loughborough University.
The long-term development – one of the largest refurbishment projects ever carried out at the university – was undertaken meticulously in 19 different phases over more than two years to enable university staff and students to carry on with their work and to minimise disruption.
The Loughborough University W&S Building refurbishment scheme included the complete internal refurbishment of both the W and S buildings in the West Park area of the campus and involved upgrading labs, offices, study areas, lecture theatres, kitchens, toilets and refreshment venues to create light, airy and modern amenities, with state-of-the-art equipment, first-class teaching and learning facilities, and attractive break out spaces.
More than 17,000 sq m of space over three floors has been refurbished and modernised in the two 1960s buildings, which are linked.
BSP was the structural engineer on the scheme, which was completed by contractor Henry Brothers. Franklin Ellis provided architectural and interior design services. The Loughborough University team included CPMG as concept architect, Faithful & Gould for cost management, and M & E engineers WYG.
