Hightown Construction is pleased to announce that they have been successful in securing a major refurbishment contract at Liverpool John Moores University. The £12m Higher Education for England Funding Council funded project will provide ‘state of the art’ teaching laboratories for the 2016/17 academic year.
The project sees Hightown Construction undertake a major role in the refurbishment of LJMU’s STEM laboratories and teaching accommodation on the University’s Byrom Street Campus.
The space will be extensively remodelled and reconfigured to create contemporary teaching space with fully serviced laboratories. The project is technically challenging as the 3,000m² redevelopment is in the heart of the University’s busiest campus. The works involves fully refurbishing a range of science and chemistry laboratories. This includes fully replacing the MEP infrastructure, structural alterations and the major demolition of the internal structure to open out the existing space to ensure that the space is fully future proofed.

Carl Pilkington, Managing Director of Hightown Construction, commented: “I’m delighted to announce this key project and we look forward to working with the University to deliver its ambitious development plans. Securing this challenging project is an excellent result and leaves us well-placed to play a prominent role as the University undertakes a comprehensive review of its property assets and future requirements.
