Sienna have been working with Swindon Borough Council for many years so we were delighted to pick up this project to transform the former Oxford Brookes Centre into a brand new educational facility for young people in the heart of Swindon.
The former Oxford Brookes building is a very well known heritage building within Swindon Borough Councils portfolio and we therefore need to take extra care and consideration in our approach to the refurbishment works. Our works involved:
- Internal strip out and removal of all fittings.
- Internal M & E works.
- Internal refurbishment of all rooms to new standards.
- Internal decoration.
- External decoration and restoring the existing windows.
- Realignment and refurbishment to WC facilities.
- Installation of new security system.
- Asbestos removal from the basement.
- Installation of street furniture to entrance
As with any heritage project it was great to see the once run down building transformed into a new worthwhile facility and the period features restored.
Completed: September 2018
