Design and Build of new IITS Laboratory at University College
Quest Interiors were contracted by University College London to create a new IITS laboratory.
The Skempton Building houses the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. It is named after the English civil engineer Sir Alec Skempton, one of the founders of British Soil Mechanics study, and former head of the department. The departmental building changed its name from Civil Engineering Building to its current name in 2004, a short time after Skempton’s death in 2001.
The project involved creating an acoustic enclosure to house materials which would be used for testing/research purposes.
Quest Interiors successfully completed the project on time and within budget.
Director of Estates at UCL said:
“Following an end-of-defects inspection of the IITS Laboratory in the Skempton Building, only one minor error had been identified for rectification, after a year of operational use.
