Useful Projects undertook a high-level review of the infrastructure at St Mary’s University. The university is currently seeking to grow the university campus, providing new teaching and accommodation facilities.
We reviewed the gas, power, water supply, foul drainage and surface water networks at the Strawberry Hill Campus and at Teddington Lock. We also conducted site visits and inspections before specifying, commissioning and interpreting surveys of the utilities networks.
We then reviewed growth in demand for key utilities to assess the additional loads on the networks, and provided recommendations to improve this understanding, as well as identifying the follow-on studies and strategies needed to inform how best to reinforce the network in anticipation of future growth.
Our sister company, Useful Studio, worked with the University to develop the masterplan and are currently working on several improvement projects, including the refurbishment of the main reception and the design of the University public plaza.
