The £18 million Mountain Halls development on the Treforest campus was completed in the autumn of 2011. It provides 476 modern, contemporary and purpose built en-suite student residences – all with hard-wired internet connections.
Mountain Halls comprises five, four storey accommodation blocks, with a single story communal block and external amphitheatre seating area at the centre of the development providing high quality internal and external amenity space for students and visitors. The accommodation has been designed sympathetically with the local environment and is fully secure, with 24 hour CCTV coverage and on-site security.
The challenge was to create a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ development using the BREEAM Multi-residential 2008 route.
