    Phase 1 of UWE’s 2013 masterplan for an
    additional 1200 student rooms, this phase
    comprises 400 rooms in the form of town
    house clusters on the Wallscourt Farm site
    Town houses were formed using a timber
    frame system up to four-storeys high. The site
    had a steep slope which we balanced the
    cut and fill to save on import and waste. The
    surface water was attenuated with a buried
    tank before discharging to a culvert on the site

    Phase 2 started design development in 2015
    ready for construction and handover in 2016.
