Edge Hill University, Liverpool – New Student accommodation

Challenge

To construct six new contemporary accommodation blocks, providing a total of 384 en-suite student rooms, within a tight budget and very limited build schedule that allowed just 27 weeks from planning approval to completion.

Solution

Whilst durability and sustainability benefits meant brick was the preferred option, there was a perception the tight time frame would drive the project towards offsite or system construction, limiting design options and adding additional cost.  Ibstock’s long-term relationship with the developer, architect and project contractors, meant the team were able to adopt a new approach and more flexible working pattern that allowed them to take full advantage of the speed of brick/block construction. Completing a floor a week and working flexible with other trades, the project was brought to completion on schedule, during one of the wettest summers on record.
