Listergate – Private Project

Refurbishment of listed building for student accomodation.

Conversion of a three ‘four storey’ 19th-century city centre building to provide a  24 Bed self-contained student accommodation unit and ground floor retail offering

Administered through a JCT DB 2016 form of Design & Build contract; the scheme included a three-story Timber framed extension and extensive structural alterations to re-order the three independent buildings to provide one integrated unit.

The design was developed with a novated architect and structural engineer. The building fabric was hidden behind multiple layers of retro-fit finishes. Cost-effective design solutions were resolved during the construction phase to ensure the long-term serviceability of the finished scheme.

• Complete Soft strip across four floors
