Canterbury Christ Church University, Anselm & Invicta Buildings
We have enjoyed many projects with Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU), none more challenging than creating a new lift shaft and well through the Senior Common Room, The Entrance Foyer and Financial Department whilst all remained fully operational.
The first phase was completed on nights with handover at 6am each morning.
The works comprised of:
Extensive Protection of existing furniture & structure
The second phase comprised:
Extensive protection, hoardings, signage etc.
The construction of a lift well and shaft
Installation of a new lift
New automatic door to the entrance and lobby
Also included was a new lift in an existing shaft in the nearby Invicta Building. The builders works for this was limited to extending the shaft through the roof and some relatively minor internal alterations. The Invicta Building was also fullyoperational during this process.
As with most educational establishments the operational/ educational needs require top priority and this project was no different with considerable safety and access issues and the need to accommodate exams in the adjacent hall.
Close liaison with the Estates Department Team assisted in ensuring the project.
