Work finishes on £2.5m Newcastle University extension

Robertson North East England has completed work on a £2.5m extension to Newcastle University.

The new Building Sciences Lab, a learning facility that will allow students to hone their practical skills, is spread over three floors and stands a total of 18,000 square feet.

Robertson, one of the largest independently owned construction, infrastructure and support services companies in the UK, began the project in April earlier this year.

Throughout the duration of the project the existing building sciences facility remained live and a close liaison with the university was required to ensure that the works did not impact on the day to day operations of the university.

The three storey extension will house new workshops and teaching space, and refurbishment of the existing building science facility.

Commenting on the completion, Garry Hope, Managing Director, of Robertson North East England, which is part of the £450m infrastructure group Robertson, said: “We’re delighted to have delivered a building that will greatly benefit students at the University.

“Robertson has worked extremely hard to ensure that the extension has been completed to the highest standards and we hope the new facility will provide an exceptional working environment for students.”
