Terry Frost Building

Location: Leeds, UK

Developer: Alumno


Principal Contractor: GMI

Architect: Howarth Litchfield

Role: Structural and Drainage Engineer

This is a new 411-bed student accommodation building in the centre of Leeds and was handed over in October 2023 in time for the first student intake.  We provided sustainable drainage design services for this challenging site.  A Yorkshire Water sewer runs through the site and we assisted in obtaining the build-over agreement, as well as connection and discharge approvals.  We incorporated flow restriction in the form of a hydrobrake with a modular crate attenuation tank, and we also incorporated volume and water quality management by using permeable paving and rain gardens.

At the opposite end of the engineering spectrum we also provided structural design support to the interior design features of the ellipsed archways, which were framed in timber and ply.
