Refurbishment of the former John Sandford sports centre in Western Boulevard is part of De Montfort University’s £136m campus redevelopment project.
Stepnell will convert the existing John Sandford Building into a bespoke, multi-functional space which will be used to house exhibitions, functions, conferences and events.
Works will involve the complete refurbishment of the former sports hall and associated buildings including timber over-cladding and new roof coverings. The new 2,500m2 facility will house an adaptable main hall, stores, kitchen-servery, office space, meeting rooms and changing facilities.
The project is due for completion in August 2015.
