Canterbury University Student Accomodation.

University of Canterbury Student Accomodation

This project was a ‘design and build’ for 15 2-storey student accommodation units (90 beds)  for the University of Canterbury.

The building consists of prefabricated closed timber wall and mid-floor panels, metrapanel ceiling, steel trusses and fully prefabricated bathroom pods.

The design and build project meant that the requirements for efficient prefabrication could be incorporated during the whole design process. Using prefabrication meant that the contractor could meet the tight project deadlines set by the client. The first block of units was fully enclosed while the foundations of subsequent blocks still had to be poured.
