Description

The Christopher Wray building comprises of a row of terraced Georgian houses in Bartholomew Row next to East side City Park. This will be restored and a 15 storey residential tower constructed alongside it.

The final project which is scheduled to finish by July 2017 will create offices, pubs, art and design studios alongside 150 student bedrooms.

The building will be a 15 storey concrete frame to the main residential floors, stabilised by the main core shear walls.

The structure is supported on a series of piled foundations to transmit the loading into the underlying sandstone. CWA have provided structural design input to assist IDP in developing the scheme, along with the drainage strategy drawings for the planning application.
