This building is a 3 Storey timber frame construction with air source units providing the hot water and electric heating within the bedrooms. Each of the 40 bedrooms has an en-suite shower room that was built off site and delivered ready to be connected to all services.

The building was designed as part of a “family” of accommodation facilities and was arranged as 6no flats with each flat having 5no individual single study beds sharing a common living/dining/kitchen. The other wing of the building had 10no individual studio bedrooms with each bedroom having a small kitchen area and an en-suite bathroom. There were also 2no fully accessible bedrooms suitable for disabled students.

The project was delivered June 2016, ahead of schedule and within budget.
