The £3.3 million mechanical-services contract to transform Derby’s Grade 2 listed Roundhouse building into a flagship campus for Derby College has been completed by the major-projects division of Hilton Building Services. The company also handled the 3D co-ordination of the M&E services information and worked alongside Imtech, which carried out the electrical installation.

The package of services that we have delivered will equip the college with all the necessary amenities to operate as a first-class higher-education facility.
