This new build 6 storey student accommodation scheme is built on a former petrol filling station and workshop site within a complicated town centre site.

Located in the centre of the popular university town of Loughborough, the project offered challenging conditions with the new build footprint occupying almost the whole of the site area.

This project was negotiated with the client and value engineering applied to the scheme resulting in a combined construction of steel frame and load bearing masonry which enabled the construction programme to be reduced.

Accommodation comprises of 103 fully en-suite rooms in two, three, four, five and six bed apartments with full kitchen facilities.

A complex but aesthetic combination of mansard and pitched roofing construction completes the project along with a relaxing inner courtyard area with external balconies and stairs.
