Royal Holloway University

Client: Royal Holloway University
Size: 1053m2

This modular building project involved the design, supply and installation of a multi-storey science and office block as well as a 20 k/n floor loading in the ground-floor lab area for Royal Holloway University, London.

As the building is classed as a permanent building under current UK planning guidelines, we had to be conscious of the regulations that needed to be achieved, passed and certified in order to conform with building control.

Extraspace Solutions successfully coordinated with the Head of Estates in order to bring the working drawings to the end user and agree final finishes that met the requirements set out in the tender. We manufactured the building at our Dublin facility, and all 27 modules were transported to a holding site on the campus and installed over a weekend to minimise disruption.

The project had a six-week fit-out programme on site due to the high-end finish required. This included all mechanical, electrical and room layout finishes. All services were designed to be recessed and enclosed, running through a suspended ceiling finish from each individual room through the corridors and circulation areas. Included in these services are an internal lift, full extraction system and all phone and data requirements.

Our team increased the U values in the walls and roof and installed a wet heating system. This design allowed us to carry out an SBEM calculation prior to the building going to site.

Full SBEM certification and building control approval were achieved, and the building has a very low rate of carbon emissions.
