From 2004 Ostick + Williams have been working closely with Queens University on a number of different contracts and appointments as part of the university’s refurbishment plan for the David Keir Building. The scale of the building is huge, covering 32,500m² with entrances on both the Malone Road and Stranmillis Road. Ostick+Williams have been involved in 14,500m² of work, accounting for approx. 45% of the Building.
A variety of teaching and research spaces have been refurbished, including laboratories, workshops, lecture rooms, academic offices, communal areas, building infrastructure and current works include a proposed roof top studio extension. Successful delivery has required an intensive management and co-ordination of work in a manner which minimized disruption.
Works are generally spilt into separately tendered contracts which are then sequenced over winter and summer semesters in order to prevent disruption to teaching. To date Ostick+Williams have managed the delivery of 6 different construction contracts.
Contract Value: £10.0 million
Project Status: On-going
