Legge St, Birmingham
Main Contractor: Pochins
Scope: Curtain Walling, Windows, Louvres, Entrance Doors and Cladding
Another Student Accommodation scheme successfully delivered by CASU for OEA Architects, utilising the Aluprof MB70 widows system, bespoke louvre barrier panels, MB-SR 50N Curtain Walling and various automatic entrance doors.
This 524 bed, 160,000sqft scheme is located exceptionally close to one of the busiest roads in the Midlands, which dictated an extremely onerous set of acoustic requirements for both out to in noise and vertical flanking transmission.
CASU utilised the latest in acoustic enhancement for both the double-glazed units and our slab edge detail to successfully meet these requirements.
Other notable challenges included the tight / restrictive nature of the site and an arduously tight delivery programme however the fit, finish and quality of the building speaks for itself.
