Associations & Charities
The Project Universities UK (UUK) mission statement is ‘to be the definitive voice for universities in the UK, providing high quality leadership and support to its members, to promote a successful and diverse higher education sector’. To create a new Conference Facility and associated works at their Head office, Tavistock Square. The work comprised of: provision of a new entrance, lobby area and conference room; the complete removal of a concrete staircase and stage area to provide new mezzanine and first floor staff accommodation; internal reconfiguration including a new print room facility and redecoration and repairs to the eight-story external elevations.
Interactive Space was appointed as Project Manager, Designer, Cost Consultant and CDM Co-ordinator, thereby acting as a multi-disciplined team to enable the project to be fully and properly administered from inception through to final completion. The refurbishment and fit-out happened through a phased programme with the Client in occupation throughout. The demolition and structural works had to be completed during the very tight 8 week summer recess.
