This redevelopment has replaced some of the previous student accommodation and ancillary academic support facilities on the Campus with attractive, high quality student accommodation.
The scheme houses approximately 730 students and also includes a central management suite, reception, staff offices, landscaped gardens, parking and a laundrette. The landscape scheme was developed by FPCR in consultation with stakeholders and the local community. The project forms part of the University’s plans to create an inspiring and innovative environment to match the aspirations of its students and staff.
The high quality landscape scheme incorporates paving, street furniture and lighting as well as soft landscaping. The Swale forms a focal point in the landscape, bounded by gabion walls and crossed by a timber bridge. An interpretation board gives information on the environmental benefits of the Swale.
New Hall was awarded BREEAM Excellent making it the first redevelopment at NTU to achieve this prestigious accreditation.
