Capital Quarter student accommodation in Cardiff

Hydrock’s Cardiff-based Building Performance Engineering team is delivering Stage 4 detailed M&E design for a new 26-storey student accommodation scheme as part of Cardiff’s high profile Capital Quarter development. 

The tower will provide 675 bedrooms and an impressive range of communal amenities including a cinema, student gym, dinner party rooms and a sky-bar on the 25th floor, all of which will help to create a sense of community for the students.

Appointed from Stage 4, working collaboratively with the architects, Corstorphine + Wright, Hydrock has helped to rationalise the M&E concept design for ISG. 

The development will transform a vacant site adjacent to Herbert Street and the Dock Feeder canal in Cardiff’s Capital Quarter which is undergoing a rapid phase of regeneration. It’s a strategic site close to the University of South Wales and Cardiff University. The project is on site with completion due in 2019.
