University of Sheffield Student Village
This was a large multi-phase project creating new student accommodation for the University of Sheffield. It provided a great opportunity for us to show-case the benefits of having several packages managed by a single contractor.
In addition to render, I-W was involved in the architectural and commodity blockwork, brickwork and timber cladding, as well as precast flooring, roofing and screeding packages.
The mixture of new fast-track building techniques and traditional methods proved very effective. For example an insulated render system was used which incorporates a blockwork wall overlaid with CFC-free insulating board, followed by a scrim adhesive cloth mesh, grey polymer basecoat and a cream polymer render finish.
