New Build Student Accommodation
Planning permission had been obtained for this development by KDP Architects, which comprises 300 student apartments with associated facilities and gym. We were commissioned for the construction phase, and due to the time constraints for the build we decided to use an off-site construction method patented by Fusion Build. This is a light gauge steel (LGS) panelling system that contains the structure, waterproofing and insulation within a prefabricated wall panel, which can then be dressed in cladding or plasterboard. The project started on site in May 2017 and is due for completion ready for the Autumn 2018 student intake.
