Willmore Iles Architects were employed from RIBA Stage 4 onwards, taking the project from planning through to construction on site.
This project had been through a challenging planning process, with a great deal of local opposition due to its location within an historic area of Cheltenham. As a result the project at Stage 4 was over budget.
We worked closely with the Contractor Client and the University to ensure that a high-quality scheme was delivered on time and to budget.
Concept design and planning by Feilden Clegg Bradley
The final scheme received good feedback from the planning officer:
‘In my opinion, the buildings sit comfortably within street scene and don’t loom over properties in Albert Road, as was feared by some local residents. The landscaping and feel of the internal courtyards is particularly successful and when they get more established, will lift the scheme further’
