The existing building consisted of three blocks of 8-storey student accommodation located around a central courtyard. This major project was split into two distinct phases. Phase 1 involved the refurbishment of the existing building to form new studios from existing cluster flats and redundant staff rooms, resulting in a total of 77 newly refurbished rooms.
A new common room was created in redundant storage space to provide additional amenity areas. The external façade of the building was re-clad using new powder coated aluminium cladding panels. Phase 2 was a new build construction forming 40 studio rooms.
