Following listed building consent being granted earlier this year, the phased internal refurbishments and reconfigurations at Sherlock Court, St Catharine’s College, have started on site.
We’re delighted to be working as Architect and Lead Consultant alongside Main Contractor, SDC Builders Ltd. and Project Manager and Cost Consultants, Henry Riley LLP to deliver the first phase of this scheme. Due for completion at the beginning of October 2021, additional phases will follow, being undertaken during Summer 2022 and Summer 2023.
Located on Trumpington Street, in the heart of the Central Cambridge Conservation Area, Sherlock Court comprises a collection of buildings of various ages set around a central landscaped courtyard, providing residential and ancillary accommodation for over 100 students.
The refurbishments require a sympathetic and experienced approach due to many of the buildings that form Sherlock Court being of Listed Building status. Our specialist Heritage Team, working closely with various User Groups and the rest of the Project Team, have worked hard to produce designs that address any issues raised, whilst also considering the site’s history and setting.
Once complete, the refurbished buildings will provide revitalised student accommodation within the College grounds. The upgraded Sherlock Court will welcome a diverse range of people, provide modern and improved facilities, and help ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of the staff and student occupiers.
