Northern Centre of Photography relocated at the University of Sunderland

We are delighted to have been appointed by our long-standing client Identity Consult to provide Clerks of Works services for the refurbishment of a suite within the David Goldman Informatics Centre, at the University of Sunderland.

The space has been carefully refurbished to accommodate the Northern Centre of Photography. The facilities include specialised photography studios, dark rooms, finishing/processing/print rooms and workshops as well as seminar spaces with magnetic walls and staff office facilities.

The Building and M&E Clerks of Works were instructed by the University of Sunderland to be the Estates and Facilities presence on site, to ensure quality and standards were maintained and on-site issues were raised and addressed in a timely manner.

“The Clerks of Works have been great. They have been very thorough with site inspections and reporting; we meet every week to evaluate and prioritise any areas that may need addressing.”

Phil Wallace, Estates Projects Manager at the University of Sunderland

The David Goldman Informatics Centre is located on the University of Sunderland’s Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s in Sunderland. The centre is a ‘computing cathedral’ with over 200 computer workstations, and the perfect place for the home of the Northern Centre of Photography; being in close proximity to the Universities of Sunderland mediaHUB, taught at The David Puttnam Media Centre.
