We have considerable experience in delivering smaller bespoke developments through to expansive 1000+ room schemes across the country. We are able to bring our knowledge to each development to provide clients with dependable advice to ensure their student accommodation schemes are highly economic.
The Wilder Street development is located in St Paul’s, an area to the north-east of Bristol City Centre.
The reinforced concrete 7-storey building will house 348 student bedrooms with commercial space and support services at ground floor. The conservation, restoration and re-use of the Grade II Listed Building, No.25 Wilder Street, will also form part of the development.
Jubb have undertaken a detailed structural review of the listed building and its inaction with the new, to ensure that its integrity is maintained. The new concrete frame will abut up to No.25 with cantilevered foundations and lightweight wall construction. The concrete frame will be founded on piled foundations to limit differential settlement and to minimise spoil removal from site.
This 17-storey reinforced concrete building is located within the London Borough of Brent close to Wembley stadium. The building will accommodate 283 high quality student bedrooms with active commercial units at the ground floor.
The structural arrangement was carefully considered to avoid a 10m deep, 1.2 diameter foul truck sewer crossing the site. A detailed three-dimensional survey was undertaken to accurately map the sewers location. Jubb then undertook a detailed ground engineering analysis of the proposed development to ensure the optimum piled foundation solution was adopted and no load was transferred to the sewer.
23-storey reinforced concrete tower, student accommodation scheme in the centre of Portsmouth. The development provides over 500 beds wrapped around a full height atrium, plentiful communal space and retail units.
The form of construction was carefully considered with an RC frame option and pre-cast concrete option developed in unison. To streamline the design process and provide the most economical design, Jubb have utilized the latest 3D modelling software linking between structural analysis and drafting.
The proposed development makes use of all the available site, building right up the boundary. The former building had a partial basement as does one of the adjacent properties. This lead to some challenging foundation solutions which have been designed in conjunction with the temporary and construction works.
King Square House was originally constructed in the early 1960’s comprising 5 storeys of concrete encased steel framed construction with a mixture of beam and block and hollow clay pot floors.
The works comprised of stripping the existing building back to its shell and the construction of an additional storey of mansard roof accommodation built off the existing flat roof of Alexandra House together with the introduction of two storeys of additional construction on both the King Square Avenue and Charles Street elevations.
The project was the refurbishment and conversion of the existing building from 67,000 sqft of office space to 243 en-suite studio apartments for student accommodation.
Jubb provided Civil and Structural Engineering support as part of Crown Student Living’s design team, in refurbishing and partly demolishing/ rebuilding an existing office block in the centre of Reading. Sections of the upper floors will be partly demolished, refurbished and extended within the mansard roof for accommodate duplex studio apartments. The lower floors of the seven storey building will be gutted and refurbished to allow for the new “twodios” with the basement refurbished for plant and common areas.
The former Yell House is situated next to the Broad Street Mall in the centre of Reading in a fully developed area, consideration to the forms of construction was a heavy influence, in additional to weight issues in adding additional storeys.
As part of Crown Student Living’s design team Jubb provided Civil and Structural support in refurbishing and partly demolishing/ re-building an existing office block in the centre of Cardiff.
The two storey rear section and upper level of the 5 storey concrete framed building will be demolished and replaced with a steel frame and in-situ concrete deck. Adding a new 3 to 4 storey addition to the rear and one to two storeys on to the remaining building footprint. These additions, with the refurbishment of the remainder will create a 378-bed mixture of “twodio” and “studio” apartments, with supporting leisure facilities including gym and cinema room on the lower ground floor.
A new build 155 bed student accommodation development located in the heart of Exeter. The project will provide high end facilities with a cinema, gym, games room and laundry room.
Sat on a difficult site with large change in level across a narrow parcel of land, various forms of retaining wall have been adopted to meet these challenges. The adopted highway to the rear is in close proximity and retain to form the new buildings, there is also an adopted highway to the front, buildings in close proximity either side, and a diversion required of an adopted sewer.
The building superstructure is formed from light gauge steelwork with insitu reinforced concrete floors sat on a piled monolithic concrete slab and foundation.
Student Accommodation development, measuring approximately 1316 square meter, with ancillary uses, located just outside Bath City Centre. The development comprises of 108 studios, 94 Student studios and 14 residential studios.
The flats provide self-contained accommodation with kitchen, dining and living facilities in the rooms.
This student accommodation building is located adjacent to Aston University Campus and a short walk from Birmingham city Centre. Located on one of the main routes into Birmingham this imposing building will be a key part to regenerating a formally industrial area.
The 16-storey building will house 492 students in a high-end student accommodation. Facilities include en-suite double bedrooms, an in-house gym, laundry and communal areas.
The structure of the building is reinforced concrete with flat slabs forming the floor plates. This form of construction is repetitive and quick to form. The flat soffit ensures a simply MEP installation and reduce the need for additional acoustic measures. Environmental and Sustainable issues played an import role in the project. Impact on the adjacent canal was minimised where ever possible and a sustainable drainage solution was adopted to discharge the site surface water.
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, our business resilience planning is now being implemented. Whilst we have not closed our offices at this time, we have empowered all staff to work remotely should they choose to do so, and our business infrastructure is fully enabled to seamlessly support the transition to this style of working. Additionally, Government advice may shortly dictate the need for us to make the closure of offices compulsory in the interests of safeguarding wider public health.
We continue to be fully operational but these measures are likely to produce a change to our working patterns.
You may therefore find that you have difficulty reaching us by our main office and direct dial landline telephone numbers but all staff can be still contacted by email, mobile numbers and Microsoft Teams.
