Chester Student Village, Chester
RPS provided Mechanical and Electrical designs for a 2300 student accommodation unit including sports and social hub facility and external MUGA pitches.
The student residences will typically be made up of houses split into 24 study/bedrooms with a communal area for each 6 study/bedrooms.
The project covers an area of approximately 70 acres and is proposed to be developed in 2 phases.
The project will have two large CHP units which will contribute approx a quarter of the electrical load at peak times, and will feed back in to the electrical network at off peak times.
RPS has been involved in setting out design strategies, developing detailed drawings for costing, liaising with utility providers, and issuing proposals to planning authorities.
The scheme has been developed to meet a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.
