A fantastic location for this student apartment scheme, situated on the high street in Sheffield with views reaching across the city, and only a stone’s throw away from the university.
Due to the prime location, this project was not without its issues, with busy high street shops below and therefore difficult access routes. One major problem was the lack of drainage for the first floor. As this development is over shops that were not part of our client’s demise, we did not have gravity drainage for all of the first floor. Our solution was a 3,000 litre steel tank suction drainage system that runs 24/7 for all the apartments on the 1st floor. The vacuum drainage toilets act exactly the same as regular ones and the problem was solved with a reliable, silent solution.
Despite these issues and a rather tight budget, headoffice3 ensured that these 48 apartments were once again completed on budget and on time, furnishing each one with basic furniture and fixtures, ready for tenants to move straight into.
