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.

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.

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

If you have any concerns about the level of disruption, please contact Project Manager, Becky Freeman

 

Please note:

This 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.
