The new student residences were built on the current Farnham campus and provides accommodation for 252 students in typical cluster flat arrangements. The typical cluster bedrooms have been designed as groups of four, six or eight and housed within five buildings across the steeply sloped site.
Rather than follow a prescribed sustainability agenda such as BREEAM, CBG worked closely with the University to develop a bespoke sustainability policy that should maximise the benefits of low energy design and a low cost in use.
CBG Consultants developed a centralised energy strategy that included a combined heat and power unit and new infrastructure throughout the whole development.
