Scope of Work
To create one of the most sustainable student accommodation campuses in the UK – delivering 274 en-suite studio apartments, as well as a cinema lounge, games room, and state-of-the-art gym.
Route to decarbonisation
Formerly a commercial laundrette, the development is based on the edge of the Durham Conservation area.
EQUANS was appointed by County Properties to deliver the revolutionary scheme which promises a full lifestyle offer for residents.
All rooms are self-contained with their own integrated kitchen, large bed, wardrobe, study desk and en-suite bathroom.
The eco-friendly facility encourages health and wellbeing throughout, with cycle storage and carefully considered communal space which aims to inspire collaboration and stimulate interaction among those who live there.
Built across six attractive blocks, the new facility reached Outstanding rating under Building Research Establishment Environment Assessment Method (BREEAM).
