Goods Corner Completed!

KRA are pleased to announce the completion of the 107 bed Student Residence Project.

The 107 studio beds housed in visually distinct blocks that allow glimpses between them of the centrally located B Listed Cottages was begun in 2017 and formally completed in February 2019

The rebuilt stone Cottages at Goods Corner act as the central hub of the scheme, acting as the single and main entrance/reception area including breakout spaces housed within it.

As the Cottages are in the centre of the site and the accommodation circulates spring out from this centre thus minimising student travel distance to all rooms.

Completed using a Light Gauge Steel Structure which allowed the project to progress rapidly on site, fusing traditional building techniques with this now popular method of construction.

KRA have had an ongoing involvement with the site since '04 then obtaining a 15 unit scheme for main stream residential before using the similar height, shape and form for the student scheme you see now completed.  See more here!!
