Next phase of a major refurbishment of the MHT building
The next phase of a major refurbishment of the MHT building on the University’s Brayford Campus will begin next week.
On Monday 25th June work will begin on the north elevation – the side facing the Stephen Langton Building – and last for approximately one month. During this time, pedestrian access between the Stephen Langton and MHT buildings will be restricted to fire exits only and a diversion will be place to the north of Stephen Langton. Staff and students will still be able to walk between the Student Wellbeing Centre and the Stephen Langton Building.
During July, contractors will also begin work on the east and west façades.
The external work on the façades of the second and third floors will improve thermal insulation and drainage, and modernise the aesthetics of the building with metallic coloured panels and a large University of Lincoln logo which will be visible from the flyover bridge and the train line.
The interior work on the third floor – which is closed to staff and students during the work – will create a further four timetabled teaching spaces with an additional 100 seats. A new learning lounge for students, designed to maximise the student experience, will offer a dedicated space to work and relax, as well as improve the layout of the floor. The location of the PG Common Room is being improved and for a comprehensive list of alternative spaces which can be used while the PG common room is out or use, please visit https://estates.lincoln.ac.uk/atb/.
During all periods of work vehicular access will be maintained. Signage will be put in place throughout the works to direct staff, students and visitors. Please follow the signage as it will change as the project progresses.
