Project specifics: 

Project: University of Brighton, Cockcroft Cafe

Location: Brighton, East Sussex

Contract: JCT Intermediate Building Contract

Value: £244,365

DESCRIPTION OF WORKS: 

The complete refurbishment of the ‘Book & Bean’ café in the Cockcroft Building on the University of Brighton’s Moulsecoomb Campus.

The Moulsecoomb Campus is one of the University’s three main sites with the 10 story Cockcroft Building, constructed in the 1960s, dominating most views in the area. The majority of the University’s administration departments are located here, as well as teaching facilities and some student halls of residence.

The area required full strip out and demolition of the existing café area to allow for the installation of a new kitchen and preparation area, together with new serving counters, display units and the use of modern LED multi-coloured lighting, together with vibrant green furnishings, make this a welcome space for the students to unwind.

The challenge of the refurbishment was to complete the works while the students were on their Summer break. Despite the discovery of Asbestos, the works were achieved in time for the students return.
