Chatham Street is the first of several phases of new
student residential accommodation planned by the
University of Liverpool as part of its long term halls
provision strategy. In generating the brief for this
important flagship development, we questioned the
current trend for providing ‘one size suits all’ solution
i.e. a majority of 5 bed cluster flats with a few studios or
larger rooms at the extremities of the plan forms.
The layout can be configured as a series of seven bed
clusters or can be opened up to act as a more traditional
open hall which is believed to be more conducive to a
happier student experience.

Masterplanning

We create visionary and innovative masterplans that provide solutions, raise expectations, improve land values and promote sustainable living.

We use the physical, social and cultural analysis of the brief to inform the masterplan and undertake a thorough physical and land use analysis of the area and a socio- economic assessment of its qualities.

We believe in adding value by good design, creating a unique sense of place, with attractive buildings, streets and open spaces, identifying key factors, which deliver sustainable regeneration.

Key factors to delivering masterplanning:

We have the expertise and knowledge to deliver complex masterplan projects, ensuring the seamless transition between the key design stages. Our planning and landscape architecture team are also on hand, providing support and advice throughout the planning, design and build cycle.

• Gathering and analysing evidence including extant and emerging policy

• Establishing the opportunities and constraints, vision and objectives of the masterplan

• Testing the viability of emerging design strategies, land use, plan layout and capacity options

• Testing design strategies against the vision and objectives of the scheme

• Prioritisation of design elements, providing strategic direction in relation to public consultation

• Establishing a design advisory panel to oversee the implementation of the design

• Identification of realistic energy and environmental performance targets to meet a sustainable agenda

Client:

University of the West of England

Location:

The brief was to provide a minimum of 750 new study bedrooms on the campus. In order to rectify historic decisions whereby the current 2,000 study bedroom village lacked student welfare or supporting facilities, the Masterplan created an extension to the existing village, with the alignment of buildings contributing towards the creation of a strong landscaped axis through the centre of the campus.

The accommodation, providing 450 bedrooms, replaces the domestic scale of the existing Carroll Court. At the centre of the village expansion is a new all weather recreational area and relaxation zone, supported by,

The masterplan also proposes a new Student Village cluster of approximately 1,000 study bedrooms close to the new heart of the Campus and well served by new public transport corridors through the Campus, and a new Energy Centre.

Whiteknights Development Plan

Client:

Stride Treglown was appointed as lead consultant to manage the preparation of a 10 year Development Plan for the main Whiteknights Campus of the University of Reading.

The Development Plan includes 2,500 study bedrooms, and Stride Treglown were appointed to design the scheme and secure planning permission for the first phase of some 1,800 bedrooms, served by a new internal access and road strategy .

University of Reading

Location:

Berkshire

University of Reading

Phase 1

Phase 2

The scheme consists of 8 & 10 bed cluster flats with a shared kitchen / dining area that are designed around landscaped courtyards. The development crosses two local authority boundaries, requiring planning applications to be submitted to both. Reading Borough Council required the scheme to achieve a 20% reduction in carbon footprint and a BREEAM score of 65% (very good).

The new buildings are heated using underfloor heating that is linked into an air source heat pump.

The second phase consists of 594 bedrooms in cluster flats and 300 bedrooms in a town house arrangement.

The town houses use a timber frame form of construction with brick and render cladding to respond to the surrounding buildings. A pitched roof clad in zinc encloses the buildings with a roof turret providing smoke ventilation and natural light to the staircases. The buildings are arranged in a ‘U’ shape around a green square with a single storey energy centre and bike store enclosing the fourth side. The cluster flats are arranged around another courtyard to the north ensuring that each element of the development has its own identity.

Phase 2 will start on site in 2011 once demolition of the existing halls is complete.

The first phase of the new halls development includes a new central facility offering: administration, dining, social, laundry and postal facilities. A new catering facility, providing 400 seats with a variety of food outlets and a bar, faces the other facilities across a new courtyard to realise this ambition. Working with Stride Treglown Interiors and Red and Orange (our graphic design studio) a completely new new catering brand identity has been developed.

Our planning team negotiated the planning application on behalf of the University.

This second phase of student accommodation at Royal Holloway’s Egham campus provides 466 en-suite study bedrooms on the site of existing student halls that had reached the end of their service life.

Tight physical constraints in site layout, close proximity to existing halls of residence (which remained in use throughout the construction period) and sensitive planning context, meant that this project had to be carefully planned and organised to minimise disruption.

Client:

Royal Holloway, University of London

Location:

The design for the new halls uses the design of the bedroom and kitchen modules built in the initial phase, with overall site layout and choice of external materials developed to reflect the existing buildings immediately surrounding the site. The College and design team took the opportunity to develop and refine aspects of the phase 1 scheme to achieve optimum maintenance and value for money, and to resolve long-standing problems associated with vehicular circulation on the campus.

The initial design principles used to generate the plan of student accommodation projects can have a fundamental impact on the efficiency of the design and capital requirements.

‘Cluster’ flat design principles

Ensuring that the brief is fully developed and understood is a key element in producing a successful design and meeting long term project objectives. Stride Treglown understand that there are complex reasons why project

briefs may differ and have the experience to interpret and efficiency are always considered to provide an optimum

moderate competing requirements to produce robust schemes that meet clearly defined objectives.

The requirements of budget, programme, site, environs, aesthetic preference or contracting choice can influence final outcomes, but the principles of layout in terms of location, orientation, density, height, massing and

solution to any given requirement for student numbers or dwelling type.

Phoenix Court

Phoenix Court formed part of the Broadmead extension masterplan (Cabot Circus development).The prominent city centre scheme has been designed to reflect this vibrant quarter of the city, through the use of bold colours and modern cladding materials.

Working closely with Bristol City Council, with whom we have established close working links over the years, and the main developer (Bristol Alliance), we achieved a successful planning application within 13 weeks of submission.

Phoenix Court was Unite’s first medium rise, 11 storey modular building. We had to consider the effect of the extra structure required within the modules to support the greater loads imposed upon them. Early discussions with Unite Modular Solutions identified a minimum distance from the corner of the module to a window opening.
