The £14m Buchanan View student halls of residence, designed by architects Holmes Partnership, is situated within short walking distance of two university campuses in Glasgow. The development comprises 650 units of student accommodation, split over two blocks – one of 6 storeys and one of 14 storeys. Various communal spaces, such as laundry facilities, are also provided.
Specialist services undertaken by DSSR included supply and extract ventilation with heat recovery systems and fire-fighting lifts to the 14-storey block. A number of acoustic controls were integrated into the design due to the proximity of the building to the adjacent motorway.
