The works for our client, University of Manchester, to the Hulme Hall building comprised of a full roof replacement and internal refurbishment.
The new roof structure was developed from a combination of steel members and loose timbers to create the low pitch roof falls in keeping with the surrounding buildings. New aluminium roof lights were introduced into the roof zones to create and maximise the natural daylight within the new conference space. The finish of the roof covering and high-level external cladding was undertaken in copper to mark the signature appearance of the building inline with an agreed design principle and planning requirement. To ensure minimal weather ingress into the building whilst undertaking the roof replacement, we constructed a temporary scaffold roof to allow for the continuation of the works within the dry zone.

Internally, the design allowed for the opening up of the internal space to create a larger conference room and study area. The multi-level building was reconstructed to include new plaster finishes to walls, carpet floor coverings, mechanical and electrical works, a combination of plasterboard and suspended ceilings, and extensive decoration as required.
Externally, the paving and drainage were realigned to assist both pedestrian and wheelchair access as well as to help distribute surface water away from the key access points. A new surface course of tarmac was laid to the adjacent University car park to provide a new appropriate space for visitor parking in keeping with the look of the building.
