Printworks Student Accommodation Western WayExeter

Construction of 492 new student bedrooms in a former print works in centre of Exeter. The accommodation comprises cluster flats and studios with common facilities, meeting rooms and a gym.

Existing post-war buildings required demolition and extensive foundation works were needed due to the sloping site. Ridge worked to address contamination necessitating site remediation; furthermore, the buildings contained asbestos.

Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys were co-ordinated by Ridge and the survey findings were included in the Pre-Construction Information (PCI). Party Wall notices were also needed, together with boundary issues that required resolution.

There were extensive acoustic requirements, due to an adjacent nightclub and main dual-carriage way.
