Stepnell completes Corpus Christi College scheme


Our Wantage team have recently completed a £287,000 re-roofing and refurbishment programme for Corpus Christi College at the University of Oxford.

We have been carrying out work to the roof over staircase 8 at the Grade I-listed college building.

Excellent working relationship

The scheme involved refurbishment work to en-suite accommodation and tuition rooms above the student library and common room. Baqus Construction and Property Consultancy provided the project management, building surveying, quantity surveying and CDM co-ordinator services for the project.

Stepnell contracts manager Jamie White says: “Our site team has focused on minimising disruption for staff and students, developing an excellent working relationship with staff at Corpus Christi College to ensure this.”

A temporary roof was constructed over the building’s actual roof to enable the construction work to go ahead whatever the weather. The re-roofing has included the installation of new insulation to improve the roof’s thermal performance.
