Project - Mount Oswald Student Accommodation
Sector - Residential
Technology - Concrete
Company - Interserve Construction
A key part of Durham University's strategic plan, the new Mount Oswald development provides 1000 new student bed spaces, as well as social spaces for two separate colleges on a site almost seven-acres in size.
To create a unique identity and promote a sense of belonging, each college needed to look different while still delivering the same scope and functionality. The project also needed to complete for the start of the 2020-21 academic year, and provide benefits for the University and local community, not only during construction, but also for the 50-year life of the buildings.
We saw this as an opportunity to think and act differently, and explored a number of modern construction techniques, selecting PCE Ltd's concrete crosswall solution for the range of benefits it brought. The use of concrete provided a versatile range of styles and guaranteed a high-quality finish.
The off-site solution provided a significant reduction in programme when compared to a traditional construction method, including a reduction of 24,000 hours of brickwork. The solution reduced waste during construction, improved safety on site and will continue to provide the University with long-term resilience and reduced maintenance and running costs.
