Another Win for Avonline Screeding.

Avonline has recently been awarded the screeding package at The Peter Chalk Centre. The work has been awarded by Willmott Dixon, who is the main contractor responsible for the project. The Peter Chalk Centre is a multi-purpose conference suite located at the University of Exeter. Avonline will be applying 170m2 of screed to the floor. It is expected that the project will be completed by late Spring 2018 and will include an additional 105 new study spaces, a new café and self-service catering facilities which will include microwaves and hot/cold water.

The versatile space at the Universities Streatham Campus has the capability to adapt to any event requirement, whether for a main plenary area, exhibition space, or combination of smaller seminar and workshop rooms.

The building itself is an unusual semi-circular design and was built as an extension to the Newman Lecture Theatre. The centre is named after former Chair of the University’s Council, Peter Chalk. A Minoprio fountain by Vivien Ap Rhys Pryce is also featured outside, mounted on the wall of the Peter Chalk Conference Centre.  This water sculpture was donated to the University by the Constance Fund in 1988 and installed in memory of architect Anthony Minoprio (1900-1988).
