University of Bristol, Wills Memorial Building

Key Facts

  • Value: £1.8m
  • Sector: Education
  • Programme: 30 Weeks
  • Scope of Work: The sensitive refurbishment of the iconic Wills Memorial building libraries and reception area..

This challenging project completed within the high profile Wills Memorial Building consisted of the sensitive refurbishment, upgrade and refresh of its libraries and entrance foyers.

The scope of works included structural openings which were subsequently dressed with natural stone; bespoke joinery and French Polishing with the inclusion of feature bronze work; sensitive stone cleaning and repairs. All of which were completed inline with the expectations of the conservation officer.

Finishing and material had to be in keeping with the buildings original intent and in some instance this required sourcing materials  far and wide such as the cork flooring and natural stone.

M&E systems were fully replaced with considerable effort taken to ensure the modern system install remained visually in keeping with the fabric of the building.
