University of Exeter Harrison Building

Description of the works

The project comprised of the refurbishment of laboratories, workshops, offices and lecture rooms in the Engineering Department.  The workshops were re-arranged to incorporate state of the art new machinery including a Rapid Prototype Machine.

New facilities were also provided within this project including a Visualisation Suite. This takes the form of a lecture theatre with advanced three dimensional cinema facilities allowing the Engineering Department to develop three dimensional images and presentations of research projects.

General refurbishment of many the offices and laboratory areas was also carried out.  The project was completed with phased handover to coincide with the start of the new academic year in October 2009.  Early access was provided for use of key areas such as the Visualisation Suite for the University Open Days.
