Mayford House student accommodation – Project Value £200k

Northern Joinery & Construction Ltd were appointed as the main contractor for this stunning student accommodation project in Durham city centre.  The refurbishment of this grade 2 listed building in Durham is now complete and we are very proud of the finished product.  We were responsible for converting what were previously dilapidated offices into 5 separate bespoke studio apartments.

The works involved were extensive, starting with a full back to brick strip out of the existing offices, including ceilings and floors.  Original features were kept and restored where possible with small, minimalistic changes where necessary.  Moving forward with the project we completed the full reconfiguration of the existing layout to create bright and dynamic living spaces.   We then project managed the mechanical and electrical fit out which included power and lighting, fire alarms, data installations, pipework, central heating and ventilation.  Our in house team of tradesmen then completed the full internal fit out package including plastering, doors sets, kitchen and bathroom installs, tiling, flooring and decorating.  Externally we created a beautifully finished roof terrace including decking and natural looking garden areas.
