RLP Surveyors provided Project Management, Contract Administration, Quantity Surveying and Architectural Design services for Bill Gates Senior House, part of 17 Mill Lane, a collaboration between the Gates Cambridge Trust and the University of Cambridge, spanning 7 years from concept to completion.

The project involved the conversion and refurbishment of existing University premises to provide a new modern, market leading working space for the Trust’s students and staff, creating a new home for the Trust in Cambridge.

With access to the site via a central courtyard and surrounding buildings remaining in use for the duration of the works, the project presented very site -specific challenges and complexities throughout which were successfully overcome by working closely with all key stakeholders of the project.
