University of Brighton – ‘book & bean’ cafe

What it is

The ‘book & bean’ café  at the University of Brighton is situated on the mezzanine level of the Cockcroft Building on the Moulsecoomb Campus in Lewes Road, Brighton.

The café has been refurbished as part of major works the University are currently undertaking to the 1960s Cockcroft Building.

What we did

MacConvilles Surveying were the Lead Consultants for the refurbishment of the café outlet which involved the entire strip out and demolition of the exUniversity of Brightonisting café unit and food preparation area.

Programming purchase of the various elements on time and managing the effect of Asbestos found in the building were key factors.

The works were carried out to a tight timescale and the  ‘book & bean’ cafe was completed before students returned from their summer break.
