Hydrock appointed as M&E engineer for new 22-storey building in Plymouth

11th Dec 2015
Our M&E team in Plymouth has been appointed by Kier to deliver the detailed design for the building services for a new 22-storey student accommodation scheme in Plymouth.

At 78m high, Beckley Court will dwarf the city’s current tallest building, the 14-storey Civic Centre.

Kier has been awarded the £29.5m contract to design and construct what will be Plymouth’s tallest building for their client, Threesixty Developments Limited.

The project will provide 507 beds across 164,935 sq ft of accommodation, featuring a mix of cluster flats, studios and two-bedroom flats with commercial space provided on the lower ground and ground floors. There will also be a management suite, reception area, common rooms and laundrette. The scheme is expected to complete in time for the first students to move in for September 2017.

Hydrock is delighted to be working with Kier as building services engineer on this landmark site in Plymouth.
