Borras is proud to have completed another great project, in partnership with the University of Westminster. UOW started out 180 years ago as the UK’s first polytechnic institution, established to educate the working people of London. Today they have over 19,000 students.

We were provided with site space upon the campus and started initial works in July. Borras was appointed to deliver refurbishment and upgrades to a total of 52 student rooms and 9 kitchens, catering to the needs of the university students. With a short turnaround time to complete the required works, the project was successfully delivered on time for students returning from summer holidays.

The works involved mechanical and electrical upgrades to all student rooms specified, the corridors leading to the student rooms were refurbished and repainted. Each room provides adequate living and working space including a gloss desktop and study chair, storage units and lighting with the inclusion of new en suites.

Works to refurbish the total of 9 kitchens involved the installation of new units, new lighting and electrical upgrades, painting throughout and the re-installation of some existing appliances.

We faced the challenge of working within a busy environment and location. Delivery of resources and materials had to be scheduled around peak times to minimise disruption to the local area. We benefited from a good relationship with our labourers who were on call, and if we needed to up numbers they would be on site within an hour. We worked with partners, Rock Townsend and Fulkers to complete this scheme of works.
