Listed Maurice Keyworth Building

Project Description

The financial department of the University of Leeds required the layout of the second floor of the grade II listed Maurice Keyworth building, were they are located, to be altered to suit their changing requirements.

This involved the installation of structural steel work to alter four separate rooms into two larger rooms. One of the rooms was to be for staff with an area for students including three aluminium framed meeting rooms and the other was to be solely for student usage. The remaining offices, corridors, communal areas, plant rooms and stair wells also needed to be refurbished as part of the project.

To ensure that the rooms were fit for purpose they were fully rewired with new IT & data points to each desk, LED emergency lighting and motion sensor controlled lighting as well as having new air conditioning & air balancing systems installed within the rooms with external plant being installed on the pre-agreed roof platforms.

The rooms were also made for welcoming to the students by installing large glazed aluminium panels into the corridor walls so that the areas felt more open.

New veneered fire door sets were installed on electronic opening devices so that the high levels of security within the University could be upheld whilst still adhering to the fire strategy number. The finishing touches of decorations and new floor coverings were also completed as part of the project.
