The construction of Shilling’s Yard student accommodation in Canterbury for Tide Construction is currently making good progress. The off site build scheme offers 388 bedspaces across five buildings. Each element is at different stages of construction from pouring the basement through to fully erected modules and areas of completed brickwork cladding.
The redesign of the scheme has the intention to maintain the consented massing of the buildings whilst optimising the efficiency, introducing amenity and recreational space and addressing the functionality of the site as well as developing the fenestration and materiality of the buildings to further enhance the design. The scheme is due for completion August 2017.
