Deeley Construction completed an extensive refurbishment of this existing building while the facility remained in use for much of the 26 week build programme.
Ashorne Hill Management College is owned by Tata Group, who also own Tata Steel Europe (formerly known as Corus) and Jaguar Landrover.
The Group use the College as a training and exhibitions centre for their diverse business interests. It is also available as a commercial conference and training facility to other corporate users.
Deeley Construction won the competitive tender in a two stage procurement process, demonstrating expert knowledge of the construction process at every stage.
The project involved new cladding works to an existing building included an extension to the kitchen, a new contemporary fit out of the dining room and concourse.
This was the first time this particular cladding system had been used on an existing building and this experimental system exceeded expectations.
It was a particularly challenging project as the building was in use for much of the 26 week programme. The rapid schedule was only possible as a result of a good client working relationship, tight planning and effective communication to overcome noise issues and disruption.
Some of the distinguishing features of the fit out included a superb marble feature panel, central staircase and balcony.
The finished development was nominated for the NFB’s refurbishment of the year award.
