Client : Crown Student Living
Number One, Portsmouth

Description :

Following on from previous work with Osborne to provide modern student accommodation for the University of Reading, F P Hurley were awarded the £3.9m mechanical contract for this 23 storey, 576 bed student accommodation development. The facility will provide a mix of high quality bespoke studios and 350 sq m of communal facilities approximately 500m from the main campus of Portsmouth University.

The city centre location presents challenges in terms of storage and delivery, which is managed by a carefully planned delivery booking system to ensure the accurate phasing of deliveries at specified intervals to ensure the programme is not compromised. To manage the large amount of student and public footfall around the development, we have drawn on our experience of working in ‘live’ environments and maintaining ‘business as usual’ for the surrounding organisations.

The development is designed to a high level of sustainability, and we are assisting in the achievement of BREEAM credits through features such as installation of water meters, CHP unit and thermal balancing values on the hot water return.

HVAC Installation(s) :

CHP Unit, hot and cold water services, 3 No. high efficiency condensing gas boilers, boosted cold water, LTHW heating, sprinkler system, BMS controls, wet riser, smoke ventilation, ventilation system, air conditioning, BREEAM.
