The University of Salford’s Peel Park campus boasts a rich history, with the Lady Hale Building. The building is dedicated to Brenda Hale, Baroness Hale of Richmond, who is a barrister, judge, and Justice of the Supreme Court in the UK. The site also once housed a Santander bank.
For the creation of the University Careers Hub, our team were tasked with a complete strip-out and reconfiguration, transforming the space into a dynamic and modern facility that would cater to the needs of the students and staff.
What We Did
Our expert team at Krol Corlett worked diligently to deliver a host of services, ensuring the successful transformation of the Lady Hale building. Some of the key services included:
Erection of internal sub-dividing walls: We designed and built internal stud walls to optimise the available space.
Design, supply, and installation of moving walls: To offer flexibility and adaptability, we incorporated moving walls that allow the space to be customised for various activities and events.
Modifications and Additions to the existing HVAC system: We made necessary changes to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems to ensure a comfortable environment throughout the year.
Installation of small power, data, and access control: To support modern technology and connectivity, we installed the necessary infrastructure for power, data and access control systems.
New finishes and decoration works: The aesthetics of the space were vital to creating a welcoming and productive environment. Our team installed new finishes and decorations to make the space more visually appealing.
Testing: Our commitment to quality extended to commissioning and testing to ensure that all systems and components in the space functioned seamlessly.
Our specialist education team brought extensive knowledge to the campus, it’s unique logistics and demographics to this project.
We’ve been lucky enough to cultivate strong relationships with key stakeholders at the University of Salford, as well as with the design team, local supply chain, and specialist subcontractors. This collaboration was crucial in ensuring that the Careers Hub met the highest standards of quality and functionality. We take immense pride in our work at the University of Salford, contributing to the growth and success of its vibrant community.
