After around 5 months of hard work the extension to Fountains Hall at Durham University has drawn to completion. Despite encountering various obstacles along the way the project was safely delivered by site manager Ian Topham within the timescale agreed. Ian himself will no doubt be happy with the final product given the long working hours he invested and the high standard of workmanship on display throughout. This project was extremely challenging not least because of the extensive temporary works required to hold the existing roof in position whilst the extension was formed. The consultant Atkins had provided a high quality specification of materials/products to be used and therefore it required skilled workmanship to ensure precise installation.
Works to Phase 7 of the project have progressed rapidly with only some external works to complete once listed building consents have been obtained.
