The 37-week programme involves a comprehensive refurbishment of Cranborne House, including all 500 study bedrooms, 75 kitchens, common areas, ground floor reception and exterior landscaping.
The accommodation is arranged in 78 clusters across ten-storeys and ISG will complete the project in a single phase, with the building be unoccupied for the duration of the scheme.
Kitchens will be stripped out and replaced and ISG will refurbish all communal and bedroom areas, upgrading bathroom pods and installing new furniture in the study bedrooms. Minor demolition works will be undertaken to relocate a new reception at ground floor level and six lifts will be refurbished as part of the works. The existing electric storage heating system will be replaced with a modern gas fired system.
