Contractor Forrest has completed a programme of remodelling and refurbishment works for the University of Leeds.

After winning the project following a competitive tender in May, Forrest has now completed an internal refurbishment of the University’s Liberty Building, which houses the Faculty of Law and Head of School’s office.

The works saw the business create new meeting rooms and office space on the ground and second floors. As part of the scheme, Forrest also carried out alterations to the building’s lighting, air conditioning and underfloor heating facilities.

The building remained occupied during the three month project, with work phased to ensure safety and minimum disruption to staff.

Jon Edgar, bid director at Forrest, said: “This refurbishment marks our first project with the University of Leeds. It further supports our solid track record for delivering high quality refurbishment work without disrupting building use – key for the education sector where we’re currently targeting significant growth.”
