Michael Nugent Starts on Site at Bentham House, UCL
Mechanical & Electrical works have began at Bentham House (Faculty of Law building) at University College London.
The redevelopment of the Faculty of Laws building will join together and redevelop the relationship between the Grade II listed Bentham House and its neighbouring Gideon Schreier Wing. The project consists of a major refurbishment and extension of the two existing buildings that form the Faculty’s home. Pictured above is an artist’s impression of the proposed build.
This project aims to repurpose the two buildings to fully integrate, physically and socially, the two halves of the department. Externally, new Portland Stone cladding will unite the two buildings visually, and internally a glazed atrium will connect them to a new, central social hub. New space will be created behind the Gideon Schreier Wing so that the much-loved Bentham House building can be largely unaltered, and teaching spaces will be created on the lower floors with staff offices on the upper floors.
Michael Nugent began work on site last week and significant progress has been made already, with structural steel work being erected and electrical containment installations. See the pictures below for latest site progress.
