Kingston Student Living
The regeneration scheme includes redevelopment of 5 listed buildings to create a new student union, multi-purpose function space, start-up business incubator, further accommodation and reception and cafeteria functions.
Our team of forward-thinking engineers believe it is vital that full consideration is given from the outset to not only how the services are to be integrated into the building’s overall design and to meeting the capital cost target, but also how those choices made at design stage will affect the maintenance and use of the building over its lifetime, including its wider impact upon society.
As part of that commitment to delivering social value we have committed to the #EngineersDeclare initiative, as we are passionate about responding to the Climate Emergency and bring our clients and collaborators along on that journey.
As well as performing the traditional role of designing heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, electrical distribution systems, public health and vertical transportation, we can offer a range of integrated services to allow you to extract maximum value from your budget. From the earliest stages of the project we will utilise our Building Physics capabilities, and in collaboration with the Architect, analyse and optimise passive design features in order to reduce the future energy demand of the buildings. Applying our Environmental Engineering expertise to the design process will maximise productivity by ensuring a comfortable internal environment is provided for the building’s occupants, and ensure resilience to future Climate Change, through detailed analysis.
We provide a key role in creating buildings that meet the needs of the communities that exist within them, ensuring the people within those spaces are safe and comfortable, and that the building delivers for those needs in an energy efficient way.
At Frankham, we promote a sustainable approach to everything we do. Our solutions are designed to meet the requirements of our clients, enhance the wellbeing of the communities they serve and work within the boundaries of our natural environment in the long term
