Park View Student Village picked up two awards at The Institution of Structural Engineer’s Structural Awards 2018.
The scheme won the Most Innovative Project in the Large Project category and received a special commendation for the Large Project Award.
Cundall provided civil, structural engineering and planning for the 1300 bed student accommodation project for Newcastle University.
Working with Galliford Try and CIMC, Cundall delivered the scheme which incorporates modular construction. Almost 800 containers were used, alongside a central steel core which contained the lifts, stairs and main mechanical and electrical distributions.
Stuart Iley, Associate, said: We are delighted to have collected two awards for Park View Student Village. It is one of the first student accommodation sites in the region to use modular construction and we have seen many benefits of this. We were able to reduce the construction time considerably to ensure that 1300 students could move into a brand-new facility in September 2018. We are all pleased that our efforts have been recognised by The Institution of Structural Engineers for this fantastic project.
