Context

The University of Leicester was built in the early 1960s and occupies a city centre location. The George Porter Building, which is part of the Chemistry Faculty, houses laboratories, lecture theatres and seminar rooms. Ferco worked with the University Estates team to refurbish one of the seminar rooms.
