A prestigious £55m newbuild masterplan development at Chettles Yard in Nottingham comprising of 7 contemporary multi-storey student accommodation blocks. Providing 1050 bedrooms, the development is arranged in apartment clusters of typically five bedrooms with shared kitchen / living rooms. In addition there are a further two buildings which provide employment / retail use on the site. The building facing Wollaton Road to the south of the site consists of a retail ground floor with student accommodation independently accessed above. The site also includes several innovative sustainability initiatives. The existing heavily contaminated land is Bio-remediated, using naturally occurring microbes to remove toxic chemicals from the soil and negating the need to remove soil from the site. The student buildings are served by hot water generated centrally by Biomass boilers. These units burn woodchips locally sourced from young Willow tree plantations. This ensures that the development is the first in Nottingham to exceed the 10% renewable energy target.
