Incorporating 477 beds around 104 cluster flats over five and six storey blocks.

Features include bathroom pods, secure by design, green roof to social lounge, grey water recycling, solar panel renewables, CHP to be incorporated to meet SBEM, highly insulated structural metal system build to meet very tight construction programme.
