Conversion of an existing disused City Centre commercial property into 66 self-contained and furnished en-suite studio student apartments.  The full external envelope was replaced, the roof removed and an additional storey added to maximise the building footprint and unit numbers. 

The building also required the addition of a new escape stair to bring the building in line with current standards. An existing lift was removed and replaced. The City Centre location brought challenges and the rear of the property abutted the network rail main link south and therefore required a close liaison and compliance with conditions set out by network Rail.

‘Just In Time’ Construction methods ensured labour and materials traffic arrived only as required and utilised straight away, without the need for additional space, minimised disruption and ensured pedestrian safety.
