New build student accommodation to provide 25 graduate study rooms and a retail unit, accommodated in a new build and grade II listed building. Foundations were designed as piled with void formers below the slabs to avoid the roots of significant nearby trees. The structure is loadbearing masonry with permanent metal formwork and in-situ concrete floors (to provide effective tying against accidental damage).
