A Midland construction company has completed almost £2 million worth of refurbishments at a university’s halls of residence.
Coventry firm Deeley Construction did the work in ten weeks, refurbishing 308 bedrooms, 40 shower rooms, 40 bathrooms, toilets and kitchens over five blocks at the University of Warwick.
The mammoth job saw a range of materials, including more than 50,000 ceramic tiles, used by 80 workers.
Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, said: “It was a massive challenge to deliver this project in the space of ten weeks and we should not underestimate the size of it.
“The team was absolutely determined to get the work done on time and on budget and while it was very, very tight, we managed to do it.
“I was impressed with everyone’s can-do attitude and it has resulted in a very satisfied client.”
Philip Moore, of the University of Warwick, said: “The scale of this fast-track project was one of the most difficult to complete in the time frames allocated and needed all parties to work extremely effectively to deliver this in 10 weeks.”
