Set to become one of the most iconic developments in the city of Coventry, Trinity View Student Accommodation is a stunning new 614 bedroom residential scheme that has been built to bring the latest in modern city living to students looking to place themselves in the heart of the city and University life. Designed by Manchester-based Day Architectural, on behalf of Crosslane Student Developments, the project is comprised of six new residential blocks surrounded by a private landscaped courtyard, creating a development that is considered not just a place to reside but a place conducive to both socialising and working.
The development ‘Trinity View’ takes its name from it being able to see the infamous three spires of Coventry from the 10th floor rooftop terrace, and was designed such that each of the six blocks are stepped at different heights of three, seven and ten storeys, rising ultimately to a 20-storey tower in the south-west corner of the site.
With the development residential in nature obviously safety of the student occupants was a major consideration in the selection of construction materials. For this reason, ALUCOBOND® A2 (7,000m2) was specified for the project, which is a non-combustible aluminium composite panel system, and due to its mineral-filled core, meets the strict requirements of fire regulations in the UK and globally, without compromising the architectural possibilities for the concept and design of buildings. ALUCOBOND® A2 is also impact-resistant, durable and weatherproof. Its proven non-combustible properties make ALUCOBOND® A2 suitable for most applications including residential, retail, public buildings, corporate headquarters and offices.
Ensuring the building made a bold and desirable statement the ALUCOBOND® A2 cladding was specified in 503 Champagne Metallic (10-25% and 40-70% Gloss) and 504 Bronze Metallic finish (10-25% Gloss and 40-70% Gloss). Fabrication was undertaken by BTS Fabrications and installed by Metclad Limited.
Though the project has only recently been completely (May 2019) it has already received wide acclaim and is proving a big attraction with students.
