Twerton Mill, Bath

Rame Consulting Limited was appointed to act as technical advisor to McLaren Property for the development of student accommodation at Twerton Mill, Bath. The scheme included highly speficied external elevation using local stone along with high quality roof surfaces so as to meet the requirements of the local authority for development within Bath City Council area.

The scheme is located on a brownfield site bounded by the River Avon to the north, listed buildings to both the east and the west and a main arterial commuter route to the south.

Close liaison with the operations team was used to refine the specification, and to allow design to develop with recognition of operations as a central focus for the team.

The scheme was comprised of both cluster rooms and studios. Townhouses were also part of the room mix.
The heritage of the site was an important element of design, not only in terms of wall and roof materials, but also in terms of the views into the site from the opposite side of the River Avon.
