Minor demolition, internal alterations and refurbishments

The names of the buildings at Keele University carry a great significance for them with lecture rooms and other facilities being named after benefactors and donors who have a special association with the founding or evolution of Keele. The Walter Moberly building is one of those, named after a British academic who played a significant role in the creation of Keele University.

The neo-Georgian style building which is built from red brick is situated at the heart of the Keele University campus, surrounded by other Academic Buildings and the University Chapel, all of which remained operational for the duration of the works.

The project involved remodelling the existing structure and demolishing part of the first floor of the building. This was replaced with a new floor construction at a higher level, to increase the floor to ceiling height on the Ground floor.

Works were undertaken predominantly at Ground and First Floor levels with limited amount of work to the basement area. The team provided full mechanical and electrical upgrades plus a major refurbishment to create new teaching facilities. New toilet areas that are DDA compliant have been formed, which meant the need for modification to the existing drainage.

A number of sash windows were replaced and sections of the flat roof were re-roofed to improve the existing fabric of the building. The paving around the building was modified and relayed to meet DDA compliance.
