student accommodation building has been upgraded and converted into
an office facility. Our involvement was to secure all Local
Authority approvals and to satisfy the requirements of the
Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) as
well as coming up with design solutions for the interior.
main challenge was to incorporate an external lift shaft, a new
stairwell (to the un-serviced third floor) and new entrance access,
while maintaining the historical integrity of the existing building.
interior is to be finished to a very high standard incorporating
private offices, open plan work spaces, breakout areas and meeting
is the first of two similar buildings to undergo major refurbishment
works with the second to follow on completion of the first.
