Demolition & Redevelopment At Cambridge University

16th March 2015

John F Hunt is about to begin a 22 week demolition and redevelopment project in Cambridge, on behalf of Cambridge Assessment, Cambridge University’s International Exams Group.

The demolition site is “The Triangle” that is situated just off Shaftsbury Road at Cambridge University. The demolition works include the relocation of bats, asbestos removal, environmental monitoring, site isolations and careful demolition using long reach excavators.

Due to the close proximity of the residential blocks which will remain in use throughout the project, John F Hunt will use a demolition ‘curtain’ to protect the buildings and occupants, whilst the walls of the high bay warehouse are removed.

The former Press Building which is adjacent to the busy guided bus route and close to the railway line, includes the Edinburgh Building, High Bay Warehouse, Low Bay Warehouse, Boiler room, Cycle store and Sprinkler tank, all of which will be taken down to the ground floor slab.

The redevelopment of the site will provide contemporary buildings which are sympathetic to their surroundings, encompassing office space for employees, a catering area with meeting rooms and archives; parking to accommodate both cycles and cars, and a number of gardens and courtyards for relaxation and study.
