Construction of a 420-unit purpose built student accommodation development spanning 7-storeys above ground. Designed to a BREEAM Very Good rating, the building will provide generous communal amenity spaces for students including a recording studio, half basketball court, fitness studio, library and zero waste shop.
Offsite manufacturing techniques will be utilised in the delivery of this project such as light gauge steel frame structures and bathroom pods to deliver increased efficiency on site, reducing material deliveries and carbon emissions, in addition to achieving programme savings.
The development will transform the vacant Hondo supermarket site, located on Upper Duke Street in Liverpool’s ‘Knowledge Quarter’, and runs adjacent to the Ropewalks Conservation Area and Liverpool Cathedral, which have significant historical and cultural importance.
Externally, the scheme will offer ample landscaping features such as two private courtyards, a private dining area, outdoor bar and performance stage and a serene area for yoga, meditation and study.
