Chancellors Walk is a luxury purpose built gated student community located just five minutes’ walk from the University of Hull. Housing over 350 students, this popular site provides a mixture of premium accommodation options from deluxe en-suite rooms to studio apartments all finished to the highest standard. This development boasts extensive communal and outdoor space as well as having its own office and reception onsite.
Construction of this award winning development began in 2012, and was completed in 2015. Built using timber frame for all of the buildings, the student accommodation scheme also had to meet the objective of being visually sympathetic to the surrounding existing buildings. Influences were drawn from the adjacent listed buildings, which Ashcourt own and converted to create spacious living spaces both internally and externally with an integrated community feel. This scheme was not put through the BREEAM accreditation however it complies with all stringent building regulations. This development was finished off with LED light fittings as well as having a district heating system installed to allow all heating to be supplied on site from large biomass boilers.
