The new scheme provides all the facilities expected in modern student accommodation, including a laundry, study rooms and offices for support staff. Adding a touch of luxury, it also includes a number of additional high-end amenities such as a student gym, dinner party rooms and a cinema, which will help to promote a sense of community for the 674 students who will call the building home.

This 25-storey student development is part of a rapid regeneration project in Cardiff.
To help the client capitalise on opportunities and work within the broader timeline, we designed the scheme to be built quickly using slipform construction.
This allows the frame and weatherproofing to be ready sooner, so the rest of the work can be completed in record time. We also hit floor plan efficiencies with just 4 room variants so we can use prefabrication to best effect.
