IFT were contracted by Sir Robert McAlpine to undertake the screeding works within the construction of a new building which will house the expanding departments of Mathematical Sciences and Computer Science at Durham University.

IFT supplied and installed screed to general areas,  over Underfloor Heating and to the Heavy Lab. We were also contracted by the M&E contractor to supply and install Underfloor Heating to both Level 00 & 01 Entrances.

The £40 million project will provide state-of-the-art learning, teaching and study spaces for both departments which have been earmarked for growth within the University Strategy Estates Masterplan. The departments will double their undergraduate student numbers by 2026/27 and increase their numbers of postgraduate researchers, as well as academic and support staff.

Located on the Upper Mountjoy site, in a discreet location adjacent to other University buildings, the building has been designed to have a minimal impact upon key views of the World Heritage Site and Durham City Conservation Area, and the project is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the University’s agreed standard for all new estates projects.
