The university wishes to offer all first year and international students a study / bedroom on campus by providing 2,650 new bed spaces. As part of phase 1 of their masterplan for new student accommodation, Stroma has been appointed to carry out the BREEAM Assessment.
Although the original brief was to achieve BREEAM Excellent, Stroma provided a review of the design with the client and project team to determine all viable credits and how to increase the performance to achieve the aspirational rating of “Outstanding”.
Working with the Approved Inspector and BRE, Stroma established the most effective route to Part L Compliance whilst maximising the available BREEAM credits.
Collaboration with the Architect and M&E Consultants to carry out thermal modelling updates and provide compliance advice through the detail design and value engineering processes.
