East Park Student Accommodation

This new building, providing 1182 student bedrooms, is set within the landscape of Exeter’s stunning university campus. The architect specified it to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards, incorporating sustainable materials and including a combined heat and power (CHP) system.

We were brought in to install a sophisticated £13m MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) package that had at its heart a central plant incorporating the CHP system. All appliances are A or A+ rated and the fittings are low energy.

The accommodation was shortlisted for Project of the Year at the Construction News Awards 2022. And it’s undoubtedly a winner when it comes to sustainable living – a key factor in enhancing student wellbeing.
