The design responds to the architectural language developed by Holford for the original Lafrowda Halls. It includes five blocks of accommodation which vary in height from 4 to 6 storeys.

The project meets the BREEAM Very Good criteria under the 2008 scheme.

Our proposals incorporate very high levels of environmental sustainability: highly insulated and airtight timber frame, solar thermal generation, heat recovery, sustainable specifications and a car-free development.

‘Willmore Iles provided an excellent level of service on the scheme, in particular in their response to queries and delivering to the project programme; their services provided excellent value to the scheme’ Ron Allen Construction Project Manager University Partnerships programme Ltd
