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.

Winner of the RISC Social Impact Awards 2020 for the Student Accommodation.

Winner of ‘ Commercial Development of the Year 2019’ at the Belfast Telegraph Property Awards.
