The project comprised an increase in the accommodation of 495 new-build student residences with associated kitchen, laundry and management facilities, plus also an extension of the existing catering facilities.
The area was originally used as a car park and informal sports / recreation field.
The design of the project also included a full Master Plan review of the Campus (where approximately 18,000 students are located), in relation to the University’s current and future needs.
The scheme was an extension to Keynes College, one of five Colleges on the Campus, and seeked to follow the existing pattern of the development of the site.
A BREEAM rating of “Excellent” was achieved.
