Durham Christopherson Building

Computer science and engineering is thriving, Durham University is certainly equipped with modern facilities and high quality equipment for all aspiring students and lecturers. 

The Department is located at Lower Mountjoy, south of the city centre, with easy connections to all colleges and the university library. It houses the Higginson and Christopherson building, the hub for education in computer science and engineering. 


Surgo refurbished the Christopherson building, as Phase 4 of the university campus development. The project worth £1.6m was in conjunction with architect GSS and consulting engineer Desco. The new refurbishment allows classes to be taught in modern high-spec facilities and in smaller sized groups providing greater interaction with lecturers and peers.


CCN supplied over 100nr replacement door leaves/ doorsets. 

The doors were faced both sides with Storm formica, and had exposed beech lippings all round.

Fully glazed vision panels were complete with stainless steel glazing bead.

The fire doors were supplied with the necessary Intumescent smoke seal, to the perimeter.
