This new development will address the increasing numbers of students living in houses in multiple occupancy already present in Nottingham. 

It will focus on self-contained living, delivering a high-quality residential setting providing the perfect student experience. It will offer students well-designed accommodation with a courtyard and wide range of amenities in the centre of Nottingham. 

The development will contain: 

Design for life 

Robertson worked alongside Development Managers Ltd to develop the scheme through RIBA Stage 4 technical Design. 

We have assisted with the design and development of the scheme and completed asbestos removal and demolition works as well as all associated drainage and external works. The works also include site clearance and demolition of the existing building. 

Delivering environmentally sustainable accommodation  

The building incorporates a holistic view of environmental sustainability in design and engineering with landscaping and biodiversity enhanced through the landscaping strategy. 

Energy efficiency in the buildings is controlled through a combination of the architecture, technical systems, construction and the behaviour of the students.  

The building is designed to minimise energy consumption through passive means.  

In addition to wider sustainability aspirations, the development will be car-free. Students will be prohibited from bringing vehicles to Nottingham through their tenancy agreements, with this rule actively enforced by the on-site management team.
