Budget

£850,000

Clayden refurbishment

The planned work will refurbish the existing Clayden building and incorporate an extension to create a computational teaching space for approximately 30 students and a number of academic offices for 18 to 20 staff. This facility will provide accommodation for the Q-Step Centre, part of the College of Social Sciences and International Studies, and enable the Centre to be developed. The robust plans in place for the development will ensure that we demonstrate value for money balanced with the University's need for modern teaching and academic space.

We will maintain a regular schedule of planned disruption on this website which includes a three-week look ahead to planned work - these are summarised below.

The project team is working to ensure that any disruption is minimised. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience during this period.

Please note that whilst we try to keep this website as up-to-date as possible, there may be times when it is not possible to capture changes that are made at very short notice to the programme in the information below.

If you have comments or questions, please email Becky Freeman, Project Manager.

Following this week's meeting with Estate Services and contractor Morgan Sindall, here is your three-week look ahead for works on the Clayden building. Please read these updates to keep informed on any noise disruption or changes to the schedule.
 

Key points for W/C 30 April and 7 May

Please note that the Public Right of Way is re-opening on Tuesday 1 May in accordance with the expiry of the closure notice granted by Devon County Council.

There is still some work to complete including some fitting of equipment within the extension, which will take place on 2 and 3 May and the delivery and installation of furniture for the extension, which will take place on 8 and 9 May.

In addition, external work that is still to be completed includes the installation of the bike store and bin store as well as the redistribution of soil across the site. The contractor, Morgan Sindall, will segregate off a corner of the site for the duration of this work. The anticipated completion date for this is Friday 4 May.

There won’t be any deliveries, but the unit providing welfare facilities to the site will be removed on 1 May.

Further work to take place at Clayden includes the sowing of a wildflower meadow, the planting of a replacement ornamental Cherry and the installation of signage. The dates for this work are to be confirmed and use of the Public Right of Way will not be affected.

Thank you for your patience in relation to the closure of the Public Right of Way and please accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused by this closure over the past six months.

Becky Freeman, Project Manager

 

Keeping you updated

We will maintain a regular schedule of planned disruption on this website which includes a three-week look ahead to planned work.

Please note:

This paper summarises the work planned over the next three weeks. This information does not account for any unforeseen work required during the stated time period.

Work has begun on site. Details on planned work can be found in the disruptions section below.

The University will be working with the contractors to minimise disruption. Work will take place only between the hours of 8am – 5pm, and deliveries will take place outside of rush hour times (8-9am / 4-5pm). The contractor will also be placing a temporary access road within the construction site. This is a measure taken to ensure the main road is kept free of mud and debris.

For health and saftey reasons, the Public Right of Way that leads from Streatham Rise to Streatham Drive has been closed. We will look to re-open the Right of Way at the earliest opportunity. This is likely to be in April 2018.
