Durham University

Desco have been a framework partner of Durham University for over 10 years. We have delivered a broad range of M&E consultancy services through the agreement, from conditional surveys and feasibility studies through to detailed design, in order to provided continually improving campus facilities which are efficient and fit for purpose.

Under the framework agreement, we have delivered a variety of projects for a range of refurbishment schemes across the university estate, including conversions of listed properties and new build extensions — such as the new Department of Maths and Computing Sciences.

The Maths and Computer Sciences Department is a new build teaching and learning centre for Maths and Computer Science. The new building will be home to teaching accommodation of various types, lecture theatres, seminar rooms, offices, catering facilities, research labs, computer suites, meeting rooms, a library, social/breakout spaces and student learning zones.

The project is due for completion in 2020.
