Work in Progress

Szerelmey GB undertakes our projects outside the M25, and are responsible for a large number of our award-winning buildings – not least the Sainsbury Laboratory, Cambridge, winner of the Stirling Prize. They are back in Cambridge at the moment carrying out the stonework and brickwork for the new University Arms Hotel set in the heart of the city overlooking Parker’s Piece. Part of the large package of works here includes the construction of an impressive Porte Cochere (pictured), with solid stone, load bearing columns. Each column is comprised of three sections assembled on site. We are also installing the greyback structural arches and will then pour a concrete ring beam on site to tie the structure together. The trussed roof will follow. Each of the Clipsham limestone columns is 3.5m high x 800mm diameter. We also built the new brickwork facade, installing a single brick, load bearing wall restrained back to the concrete slab edge using stainless steel restraints.
