Morgan Sindall Construction’s North West team has completed the refurbishment of the ground floor of the existing Greenbank Building at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in the UK. 

The team has handed over the first phase to the university’s School of Veterinary Medicine. 

Situated on the university’s Preston Campus, the newly refurbished space includes simulated consultation rooms, a physiotherapy suite, and a dedicated area for kennels.  

X-ray and ultrasound equipment have been installed, along with a hydrotherapy treadmill and a second physiotherapy suite designed for the rehabilitation of dogs. 

The project also saw the creation of simulated operating theatres, diagnostic suites, dental rooms, and pharmacies.  

Additionally, flexible teaching spaces have been introduced using moveable acoustic walls.

Greenbank Building has remained operational throughout the project. 

Morgan Sindall Construction North managing director Simon Arnott said: “Our handover of the Greenbank refurbishment represents a significant milestone in our delivery of the Veterinary School.  

“As a refurbishment project, close collaboration with the university’s team has been paramount in ensuring the Greenbank Building enhances the wider learning environment, and we’re pleased with what we have achieved together.” 

Meanwhile, construction is progressing on a 50,000ft² four-storey main building, featuring high-specification anatomical skills laboratories, microscopy labs, and immersive teaching facilities. 

Upon completion, it will serve as a learning hub for a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in veterinary and animal sciences. 

By integrating the school’s ‘one health’ philosophy and aligning with sustainability objectives, this project aims to achieve a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology Excellent rating. 

The latest collaboration between the university and Morgan Sindall follows the completion of the JB Firth Building in 2011. 

Earlier this month, a consortium led by Morgan Sindall Construction was awarded approximately £1m ($1.26m) by Innovate UK to advance the development of Sindall’s CarboniCa tool.
