TRIPOS COURT, CAMBRIDGE
Project: Refurbishment of Purpose Built Student Accommodation
Client: Flagship Group
Services provided: Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveying, CDM2015 Principal Designer
Contract value: £2.5m
Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed by Flagship Group as Employer’s Agent and Quantity Surveyors on this refurbishment of purpose built student accommodation in Homerton Street, Cambridge.
In total 300 ensuite bedrooms and 50 communal kitchens in the complex were refurbished to provide bright and modern accommodation in the co-located blocks a short distance from Cambridge City Centre.
Programming, completion dates and consideration for residents were all critical factors on this project as the accommodation is occupied year round, generally by students on short courses in the University town. DCP undertook detailed planning and co-ordination with all parties involved to ensure that work on the facilities was completed successfully without delay and with minimum disruption to the resident students.
This comprehensive refurbishment programme spanned 65 weeks.
