Imperial College London – Library Phase 1

The challenge

The Imperial College of London library required refurbishment on two floors and full plant upgrade on the rest of the building. The library is open 24 hours a day and for 7 days of the week and we had no access to the ground floor. Innovative solutions were required to deliver on this live site and the logistics of working in Kensington, central London,  made this a challenging and rewarding project to work on.

Location: Kensington, London



“…On behalf of ICL Estates Projects, a note to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Willmott Dixon team, for the excellent progress made to date on the ‘CDT – Library Level 4’ project.  Whilst there is still some way to go during the next month or so, to get the spaces fully completed and commissioned, the hard work and dedication shown by your team so far will enable the Users to commence their AV/FF&E fit-out in the next couple of weeks, as planned, which keeps us on track to open the new CDT centre for the start of term…  I look forward to the remaining phase of works on the ‘CDT – Library Level 4’ project, now that we have passed through today’s key milestone, to enable us to achieve Completion in the coming weeks…”
