Refurbishment scheme completed


Contractor Henry Brothers has completed a £30m scheme to refurbish 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. It included the complete internal


refurbishment of both the W and S buildings. More than 17,000sq m of space over three floors has been refurbished and modernised in the two 1960s buildings. The scheme 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. The buildings remained in


occupation during the extensive refurbishment scheme, which was the latest in a number of projects undertaken by Henry Brothers at universities in the East Midlands and follows the £17m STEMLab project at Loughborough University, a multidisciplinary science and engineering teaching building completed in 2017.


‘Every member of the team involved in the refurbishment of the W and S buildings can be truly proud of what has been achieved’


Henry Brothers Midlands Managing Director Ian Taylor said: “Every member of the team involved in the refurbishment of the


W and S buildings can be truly proud of what has been achieved. It really is a top-class refurbishment scheme which has transformed a pair of 1960s buildings into two high-quality facilities, fantastic spaces in which to research, teach and learn. “When working in a live


environment there are naturally constraints but in close conjunction with Loughborough University, the work was carefully planned to avoid disruption to the students’ studies. On occasions, this meant using a non-traditional construction approach. “The team at Henry Brothers is


absolutely delighted to have handed over two outstanding facilities, on time and within budget, following this extensive and challenging refurbishment project.” Shaun Green, Project Manager – Engineering at Loughborough University, said: “The W and S


trentbarton invests in full fibre


trentbarton has commissioned ITS Technology Group to design, build and operate a full fibre network, connecting 15 sites across the region, into South Yorkshire. The new network gives trentbarton the connectivity


it needs to underpin all its operational and customer- facing data needs – including live departures information, ticketing and smartcard payments. A driver for the upgrade was to implement a bespoke fleet management system, to help the engineering team predict and prevent breakdowns to keep buses on the road.

trentbarton, said: “Our customers are our number one priority. We need to have great connectivity to ensure smooth running of our operations to keep our buses out on the road. ITS has delivered in every respect, building a network that can support us moving forward and protect us from the copper switch off.” Daren Baythorpe, CEO of ITS, said: “We are delighted


to have won this tendered contract with trentbarton. We developed a solution that worked technically and commercially, building a multi-site network that is both flexible and will scale with their needs.”


project has been very challenging and, running over two-and-a-half years, one of the largest refurbishment projects carried out at Loughborough University. “Henry Brothers managed the


project very well and delivered the new facilities to a high standard, while also maintaining an excellent health and safety record during the programme of works.” Professor Rachel Thomson, academic lead for the project at Loughborough University, said: “We are absolutely delighted at the transformation of these two buildings. “It has also been fabulous to see


how our students have reoccupied the informal spaces across both buildings, which is important for our learning community. We appreciate all the support from Henry Brothers, the architects, the QS and the contractors in realising our vision.”
