Project Value: £765k

Becket Court involved the erection of a two-storey building to provide student accommodation comprising of 12 apartments which was a Design and Build Contract.

This project was also initiated from our previous student accommodation projects in the area of Sturry Road, Canterbury that has spanned over a 10 year period.

The works had to be carefully planned, due to the close proximity of the previously completed phases and careful management of the traffic and pedestrian movements of the existing students.  We lead the team architects and structural engineers through from the planning stage to completion and had regular co-ordination meetings with the client.

The construction methods used for these phases have been piling and ring beam sub-structures with traditional masonry walls decoratively clad with panels and a fibreglass or single ply membrane roof and has incorporated various levels of renewable energy including PV.
