The brief was to reclad the fire damaged steel building. The estates office for Nottingham university had a barn that had been fire damaged after a stack of hay and straw caught fire. The building was reduced to two bays with just the columns and trusses remaining for the other two bays.
The idea was to reinstate the building with the same specification. This included a fibre cement roof, timber purlin and sheeting rails and side cladding in steel corrugated sheets with timber boarding on the front and a new gutter front and back.
