The University of Wolverhampton - Team Based Learning

Faithful+Gould were hired as part of an ongoing relationship with the University of Wolverhampton to reinvigorate an existing unused laboratory space which had fallen into disrepair, and to provide a flexible teaching space specifically geared towards team based learning activities.

The client’s primary requirement was to provide a space which would be suitable for team based learning exercises, while still possessing the flexibility to hold traditional lectures & seminars, providing them with a space which maximised usability.

Our Birmingham building surveying team analysed and prepared a suitable client brief, preparing a suite of contract documents and negotiating the tender process with a framework contractor, administration of the JCT Intermediate Building Contract and on site management of the works to completion.

The clients brief for a flexible team based learning facility was met by removing redundant furniture and lab equipment and stripping out existing internal ceiling and floor finishes. New entrance lobbies were formed to satisfy building regulations requirements for increasing the capacity of the space. The stripped out room was then fully refurbished with a new suspended ceiling, carpet tiles, door sets and joinery and redecoration throughout, as well as renewed furniture and audio visual equipment. Mechanical and electrical system upgrades were also made to satisfy building regulations requirements for increasing the capacity of the space.

Faithful+Gould successfully met the client’s brief. As a result of the work we carried out the client has benefitted from this rejuvenated space not only by maximising capacity and but also flexibility of usage so they can now use what once was just lab space as a lecture area and break out room for group work.
