Key Elements

Crookes Walker Consulting Ltd have been commissioned by Select Property Group to develop and deliver the Mechanical, PH and Electrical Engineering Services design for the student residential development comprising high quality studios together with contemporary amenity and hub space.

The development is located in Cardiff City Centre and comprises multiple floors of studio accommodation within a constrained site.

The project challenges included the close proximity of Stuttgarter Strasse and local attractions. Utilising extensive Dynamic Simulation Modelling CWC examined the development for overheating risks when assessed against CIBSE TM52, the final solution employs a mixture of natural and mechanical ventilation strategies. The development incorporates into the design a listed building and sits next to other listed buildings.

Additional project requirements include Welsh Part L requirements, which has been achieved by optimising
the building fabric performance and employing Low and Zero Carbon strategies, such as Combined Heat
& Power (CHP).

The project has not been submitted for planning approval.
