When architects ID Partnership designed Turner Court, a new 8 storey accommodation block in Portland Green Student Village in Newcastle, they included all the features that busy students need. So it was no surprise that within days of opening, every one of the 275 bedrooms was fully let.
Built by Metnor Construction on a brownfield site, Turner Court provides a combination of 4–7 bedroom en-suite cluster apartments and studios that can cater for single or double occupancy. Facilities include high speed broadband, ample bike storage, common room, launderette and games room as well as an on-site Tesco Express and Subway.
Now one of the most popular developments in the lively and buzzing student village, Turner Court is ideally located for students from both Northumbria and Newcastle Universities.
Featuring Senior’s polyester powder coated SCW+ curtain walling, SPW 300 windows and automated SD Doors, fabricated and installed by Visual Concepts Ltd, the building provides a warm welcome to students living away from home for the first time. With access severely restricted around the site Visual Concepts Ltd. completed the installation with the use of mast climbers to the outside of the building and courtyard elevations.
Offering a full 25 year guarantee and a 40 year life expectancy, Senior’s thermally efficient aluminium fenestration provides a durable and cost effective solution to student accommodation. Keeping heating bills low and reducing maintenance costs.
Senior’s products also helped the project to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and ‘Secure by Design’ accreditation.
