Project Story

Willmott Dixon Interiors are proud to be delivering the refurbishment of the Wulfruna Building and Alan Turing Building at the University of Wolverhampton to provide enhanced facilities for film and pharmacy students.

The refurbishment project will provide more than 32,000 sq ft of flexible and modern teaching spaces across the two buildings, with new finishes, layouts and furnishings.

Willmott Dixon Interiors will demolish some of the partition walls at the Wulfruna Building to form larger, multipurpose teaching spaces for use by the university’s School of Pharmacy.

The revamped facility will deliver a new pharmacy reception, as well as flexible practice and clinical skills areas, including a bespoke post-graduate teaching space and counselling rooms for the development of clinical and counselling skills.

The Alan Turing Building will undergo a refurbishment to the ground, second and part of the first floor, which will deliver a professional working environment for film, television and animation students.

Features of the new Wolverhampton Screen School will include new production space, an equipment media store, a video studio with movable partitions and a multipurpose studio which can accommodate a larger number of students. The contractor will also create new MAC labs, edit suites, staff offices and a production base room.
Key Challenges
  • A large site spread over two buildings and 3 floors.
  • Limited legacy information.
  • Integration of specialist contractors within a fast track build programme.
  • Restricted access for deliveries and loading.
  • Refurbishing circulation areas within an occupied building.
