Case Studies

Turl Quod Refurbishment - Lincoln College, Oxford

The project consists of the refurbishment and conversion of the ground floor of a three floor college student accommodation building in Turl Street, Oxford.

The new scheme provides teaching, seminar and leisure rooms with facilities and a new staircase tower with lift located on to the end of the existing building to provide a new entrance.
The site has an extremely restricted entrance and some of  Kingerlees roles include the co-ordination and installation of new incoming services, co-ordination of archaeological investigations, piled foundations and a structural steel frame.
The existing building dates from 1926 and is built in a mock Tudor style around a very narrow, restricted, L-shaped paved courtyard. The building is surrounded on all sides by the backs of shops fronting Turl Street, The Covered Market and the Mitre, all of which require continued operation services and escape routes maintained through the site during the course of the works.
