Summers Inman were recently appointed as Employers Agent and Cost Consultant on a new student facility in St Andrews. This exciting new scheme incorporates 135 student accommodation places aimed at the postgraduate market in three district blocks constructed in zinc, brick and glass. The scheme also provides a dedicated nursery area leased by the University. As part of the overall delivery, a landscaped feature was provided bordering the stunning location of the town’s East Sands and featured Scots granite sections etched with the specially commissioned poetry of Jacob Polley.
Summers Inman is appointed to act as PM and QS on this great scheme in Greenwich for the Royal Museums. The scheme consists of providing a new Collections and Conservation Centre at Kidbrooke which will bring the Museum’s conservation studios, photographic studio and collection storage together for more efficient working and improved collections care. The centre will provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ for the majority of the museum’s 3-D collections and those 2-D collections that cannot be accommodated on the main Greenwich site. It will provide storage facilities and, through the learning centre, improved access to collections for staff, visitors, researchers and learners of all kinds. It will be a cultural asset for communities in Kidbrooke.
The scheme is a new build of just under 5,000m2 with a value of c£11m and is being procured through the Scape framework with Willmott Dixon acting as Main Contractor.
