Completed August 2021

London South East Colleges

Theobald’s were awarded this project during the COVID pandemic, which provided its own challenges for the project but the purpose of these works was to create newly formed spaces for other areas of the campus that were being decanted and relocated.

The works included the extensive strip out and demolition of brickwork walls to several of the floors, including soft strip out. Installation of new partitions to form offices, teaching areas and workstations. New floor coverings throughout, full redecoration, ceiling replacement and repairs, formation of a new canteen/servery area, formation of new performing arts room including specialist relocation of lighting rigs and formation of a new stage. Installation of a new entrance for the college, including new aluminum windows and doors. The works also included full electrical installations throughout all areas, including re installing lighting were possible and new ventilation to all floors.

These works were completed whilst the college was still active, with external scaffold access required to each floor for access to the site and waste removal. These works were completed in time for the start of the new college year in September.
