| THE PROJECT |
Southampton University appointed 2 different developers on this project, making it a joint venture to ensure the project was able to be progressed and developed in the short timescales available. The scheme consisted of a 400-bed student accommodation across 5 blocks and up to 5 storeys, with undercroft parking and communal facilities on the ground floor, consisting of a gym, movie room, quiet spaces and two retail units.
| SERVICES WE PROVIDED |
ELLUC Projects provided structural engineering services including precast concrete designs. This included all design and detailing works associated with precast concrete frame and any supporting steelwork required. This particular design route was agreed by all parties as the best solution, as it saves build time on site. By casting the concrete in an offsite factory for the walls, floors and stairs, it enabled the parts to be transported to the construction site to be lifted into place.
ELLUC also carried out all temporary works designs to allow the safe erection of the precast concrete structure.
