James Clerk Maxwell Building - Maths Department

James Clerk Maxwell Building - Maths Department, Edinburgh

  • Client: The University of Edinburgh
  • Summary: Refurbishment of Maths Department Rooms
  • Location: Edinburgh

Two areas were refurbished to provide an expanded computer lab in one area and post-graduate student common room with teapoint, group study room and presentation room in the other. Challenges on the project related to programming of works as the project had to be finished before students returned from the summer break, giving a design to completion period of 6 months. As the alterations were mainly cosmetic, it was important to provide internal 3D images and samples of finishes to the client. We worked closely with furniture suppliers to ensure the product delivered matched the needs of the client now as well as providing potential future flexibility of the space. The end result is a facility that allows students to both study and relax in a comfortable, modern environment which we were able to deliver within the tightly constrained time period.
