Topping out at Geoffrey Arthur Building 2

A topping out ceremony recently took place at Pembroke College riverside campus to mark the progress made at the new graduate student accommodation development, Geoffrey Arthur Building 2.

Work started on site in November 2020 and is being delivered by contractors Beard Construction. The project has been progressing efficiently despite the challenging conditions of the site and pandemic climate.

The ceremony was the perfect opportunity to highlight the challenging work and collaboration from all on-site. Including key input from MICA, Cost Consultants Ridge & Partners, sustainability and servicing engineers QODA, structural engineers HRW, fire engineers Astute, and acoustic consultants Bloc.

With the building structure taking shape, attention now turns to internal works and finishes. The new facility will provide over 77 graduate bedrooms, a common room and 8 studio apartments on the one site, bound together by landscaping and an increased sense of arrival along the river. New students will be able to move in to the accommodation in autumn 2022.

Mark Tugman, project Architect said:

“An immense amount of dedication and energy has gone into the project over the past couple of years and to see it reach this stage is a real achievement and credit to the whole team. We look forward to seeing the students move in for the new academic year and enjoy their energy efficient, high quality study bedrooms with views over the river.”
