- Student Accommodation
Working with S1 Developments, Allan Murray Architects and Harley Haddow we successfully delivered this 230-bed student accommodation development within a tight site in the centre of Edinburgh.
Our scope of works focused on the new build of three blocks arranged around a central courtyard. The three 3-storey blocks were constructed consecutively and ahead of schedule within a 9-week programme.
Providing a pre-panelised system into the city centre has several benefits. Less vehicles are required to deliver to site, lowering transport emissions and less site labour is needed to erect the structural frame, reducing health and safety risks.
Concrete floors provided an inherent acoustic and fire benefit to the structure and a Metframe constructed mansard roof completed an interesting design to compliment the Category C Listed Building, St Joseph’s House situated within the courtyard area of the development.
The development is on programme to welcome students in September 2022.
