A £12 million refurbishment of halls of residence for the University of Southampton has been recently completed by regional construction company Brymor Construction. The refurbishment of the University of Southampton’s Montefiore blocks was finished in time for the beginning of the new term this autumn.
With its headquarters in Denmead, Brymor Construction carried out a complete overhaul of the ageing, but structurally sound buildings, which date back to the 1960s.
Stephen Morton, Chairman of Brymor, said: "This was a substantial project aimed at breathing new life into ageing accommodation blocks to ensure they meet the high standards set by the university and demanded by students today."
The refurbishment of halls of residence was Brymor Construction’s largest project of this type in terms of value and the extent of works, although the company has previously worked on student blocks with more rooms. It included refurbishment of all rooms and communal spaces in Montefiore Blocks A and B, along with upgraded and new kitchens for a total of 260 students at the halls.
