ACS has been employed by Vinci Construction to provide the civils for the student accommodation at Hull University.
This project comprised the construction of foundations, RC slabs, multi-service trenches, ducting, FW & SW drainage network, attenuation, kerbing and edgings to footpaths, external paving and the car park construction of 9 new residential blocks at the University of Hull. This was to form their West Campus Residencies Project (WRCP) and provided approximately 1450 new self-catering bed spaces.
The scheme is being delivered by Vinci Construction UK for their client University Partnerships Programme (UPP), who will manage the properties on behalf of The University of Hull.
We were required to install an attenuation tank at 6m deep. The high water table meant we were required to install a dewatering system in order to manage the control of water ingress.
We closely worked with the client to come up with a solution to ensure Phase 1 was a seamless operation. To achieve this, we had to procure and deploy additional gangs to accelerate works on areas of external paving and at other locations across the site.
