Deasy Road, Coventry

Deasy Road, Coventry

155 en-suite student bedrooms on a site located at the gateway to the Coventry University Technology Park and close to the main Coventry University campus, which has an extensive future development programme.

It is the latest in a number of large-scale student development contracts sealed by CPUK and its second major building project in the West Midlands this year as it continues its ambitious expansion plans.

The company started work earlier this year on a £11mproject in Selly Oak, Birmingham, delivering 331 student bedrooms.

Work on the Coventry scheme for developer Beechfield Estates will start this month and is due for completion in September next year. The seven-storey Deasy Road development will regenerate a brownfield site.

The building has been designed by GWP Architecture, which has offices in London, Leeds, Manchester and Prague. Its contemporary design includes a reception area and communal social spaces.

The scheme has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ assessment rating.

Thermal Performance

The scheme required an external wall U value of 0.13 W/m2K. The factory insulated closed panel achieved this in a single 318mm thickness of panel, including a service zone, using Kingspan TW55 insulation.

Factory fixed Integral vapour check and breather membranes combined with the resilience and performance of MultiPro XS board on both sides completed the external wall Urban Logic system.
