Work begins on Aston campus revamp

Work starts on a major redevelopment and refurbishment for Aston University 

Posted by Hannah Vickers | July 20, 2017 | Facilities management

Nottingham-based Clegg Construction was awarded the £4.5m contract to overhaul part of the Main Building at the Aston University campus, which is close to Birmingham city centre.

It will involve remodelling existing under-utilised space in the building and transforming it into new labs for the University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, which will utilise the space for research into fibre optic communication.

Clegg Construction will carry out a range of works including internal demolition, stripping out of existing services and the creation of new rooms and lab spaces, including a clean room. Work is due to be completed by the end of October 2017. 

The work is part of a wider multi-million pound redevelopment of the entire estate at Aston University.

Clegg Construction has shown a flexible approach that enables success in delivering schemes in sensitive and live buildings - Ian Oldacre, Aston University’s Director of Estates

Aston University’s Director of Estates, Ian Oldacre, commented: “Clegg Construction has shown a flexible approach that enables success in delivering schemes in sensitive and live buildings. This is a factor in why Aston University has enjoyed successful projects with them.”
