Architect: rg+p Ltd
Project Manager: MDA Leicester
Contractor: JA Ball
New build student accommodation development consisting of around 135 studio apartments. The hot water design employs air source heat pumps and central gas fired water heating to allow the building to use electric heating whilst still being compliant with Building Regulations for energy conservation. The proximity of the adjacent Leicester City Council office building required careful design and coordination of the smoke ventilation shafts to preserve the right to light.
Duties: Full detail design to Stage 4, including site monitoring, SBEM and EPCs.
