    This development consists of three new-build student accommodation blocks for Liverpool University, situated in a key gateway location at the entrance to the University campus and the city centre, built on the site of the now demolished Veterinary College, which was a previous Curtins project from the 1960’s.

    Using 3D modelling and BIM, we worked hard to optimise structural floor slab design to minimise structural zones, creating the opportunity to incorporate additional bed spaces which provided the contractor with the bid winning solution.

    The three blocks contain 1271 beds and are up to 11 storeys in height. A reinforced concrete ‘flat- slab’ design solution, supported on RC columns, has been used to help achieve a reduced floor to floor height, in turn allowing an additional storey to be added to the buildings, whilst still achieving the maximum building heights defined by Planning. A particular challenge here was the need for specific design/construction considerations and third party consultations due to the very close proximity of Network Rail infrastructure.
