To redevelop existing student residential accommodation, with a mix of refurbishment and new build elements to provide a total of 740 student bedrooms
To create a highly sustainable, well insulated ‘eco-residence’ for students of King's College, London
We were brought on board by the lead consultant, Rider Levett Bucknall, to provide full project management services for the scheme.
The project was procured by King’s College, London via the Government Procurement Service (formerly 'Buying Solutions'). On appointment, we helped the College to develop a new brief which sets the King’s College, London standard for all new-build and refurbishment student residence projects. This was then used to monitor and report against the design throughout the process.
Through careful life-cycle modelling of the appliances selected for the 45 kitchens across the site, we helped the College to offset the cost of electricity in the sum of £600,000 over a 15 year cycle. The College's desired completion date was achieved through the formulation and implementation of a procurement strategy that created a separate enabling works & demolition contract.
