About University of West of England SAP3

The project comprises the delivery of 900 bedroom student accommodation spread over 3 multistorey blocks. When complete the project will be the largest Passivhaus residential scheme in the UK. This is achieved by providing incredibly airtight and energy efficient buildings with very low energy consumption. Previous old accommodation stock was demolished to allow for the development which is located right in the heart of the UWE teaching and student accommodation areas of the Filton Campus. Each block also has various communal areas providing cafeteria, laundry, study and break out areas along with student welfare facilities. The project is the latest example of ongoing construction works on the campus and continued investment by the University.


At the time of the Open Doors scheme, all of the three tower blocks will be complete from a frame and external wall cladding and window perspective. Internally, a rolling internal fitout schedule will be well advanced with examples of first and second fix and final install being undertaken. This will mean that examples of metal framing and plasterboarding through to second side boarding and skimming will be available to see. MEP will be well advanced in main service runs and risers and install in the individual rooms will be well advance. We will have commenced the installation of the fixed furniture; carpentry and joinery; floor finishes and decorating will be in progress. Externally, civilisation and landscape modelling will be in progress. In summary, all aspects of construction apart form concrete frame will be available to view.
