123 York Street, Belfast
This new-build, 12-storey block accommodates 406 student rooms, kitchens, a recreation area, common room, open courtyard, cycle store, plant rooms and ground-floor retail units.
Replacing a demolished 1960s block, we established foundations on an uncontaminated, level site over sleech with 18-20m deep piles with site-specific pilecaps located to work around existing piling.
Structure is a reinforced concrete frame, with transfer beams located generally above ground floor retail space. Slab edges were modified to facilitate copper and zinc rainscreen cladding and specific glazing detailing.
