One Hockley project consists of 131 student beds, comprising self contained studios and cluster bedroom units with shared kitchen dining rooms. Built over 8 storeys there is also a reception area, laundry, gym and lounge for the students as well as a retail unit included on ground floor.
The residential element of the project uses the Futureform Building System modules. These are manufactured and assembled, including services and finishes, off site and offer improved acoustic, thermal and air tightness performances as well as quicker overall build speed. The modules once erected are finished externally in render and or rain screen cladding.
The scheme has been designed in close liaison with the Local Authority ensuring its form and massing address the diverse scales of neighbouring buildings.
