CASE STUDIES

This project is a new 107 unit Student Accommodation for Kenworth Student Living due to open in 2018.  The works consist of:

  • 3 towers of 3 & 4 storeys erected to Light Gauge Steel Frames (LGS) and metal deck with timber roof truss and sarking over the top
  • LGS is over-clad with an insulated rain screen system which is subsequently rendered
  • Roofs are finished with slates to the pitched sections and Sarnafil single ply membrane to the flat parts
  • Windows to the front facades are aluminium glazed and the rear windows are PVCu
  • A listed building cottage linked to the rear of the new central tower building is to be rebuilt in its original stone facades
  • 2 lifts for access to the accommodation

All rooms are self contained and built to very high-quality specification.  Each student will benefit from: an en-suite shower room, kitchen area, desk area, bed, lounge seat and TV.  In the rebuilt cottage there will also be communal laundry facilities and a common area fitted with couches, desks, pool tables and TV lounge.
