City Block


Located in the centre of Lancaster, this project comprises four storeys of student accommodation above ground floor shop units.  It was completed in September 2003.

The building is framed in structural steelwork to first floor level, creating open and flexible retail space.  Above this, the student flats are in timber platform frame construction.  The timber frame solution significantly reduced the overall construction period compared to conventional masonry walls and pre-cast concrete floors.
