Description

College Hall is the refurbishment of a series of Grade II listed buildings consisting of three accommodation blocks, including a conference centre, reception and administration building.

Horizontal and vertical service routes were carefully co-ordinated at design stage to minimise their visual impact on the bedroom accommodation whilst maintaining efficient use of the space available to ensure the bedroom accommodation was not compromised in any way.

The key focus on the design was to implement as much passive efficiency within the services installation as possible. This was achieved through the incorporation of high efficiency plant, LED dimmable lighting, occupancy detection and other measures resulting in a 75% reduction in energy usage.
