McVeigh Offsite was appointed by Keepmoat to deliver 71 high quality en-suite student rooms and houses, in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The accommodation comprises 5 x 11 and 2 x 8 bedroom town houses which include fully accessible bedrooms that can be easily converted to further bed spaces if the need arises and utilised as conference facilities outside of term time. Extensive Value Engineering and Innovative Solutions • The University of Cumbria needed both cost and programme certainty to achieve their vision of high quality student accomodation available for the next intake of students in September 2016 • McVeigh Offsite worked closely with Keepmoat to develop a bespoke design using off-site manufacturing. Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) provided a cost effective, environmentally friendly and labour saving alternative to traditional construction methods; reducing the construction period, waste, energy consumption and disruption to local environment.
