The high-end development provides 496 self-contained studio bedrooms, a communal “Hub”, private study and dining rooms, a games room, and a dedicated residents’ gym. The eye-catching “Copper Towers” development signifies a key milestone for the Vita Student brand, marking the 10,000th bed delivery during the brand’s ten-year anniversary.
The living accommodation is provided in individual bedroom studios, with sizes ranging from 16 sqm up to bespoke units of over 30 sqm. Nearly half of all studios benefit from a Juliet-type balcony, from which the occupiers can enjoy the stunning views across the city of Coventry.
The accommodation is split across three main building elements, a 3-storey white brickwork podium, and two metal rain screen clad towers at 12 and 14 storeys. External amenity is provided through access to two external landscape terraces and a central landscaped courtyard, complete with external kitchen facilities.
The demand for precision and quality on this project was paramount considering the design detail and White brick and white lime recessed mortar.
The impressive front façade constructed on a gradual radius incorporates recessed angled special corners, recessed corbelling panels and a corbelled paraphet detail which adds to the clean lines of the structure.
The podium build was the showpiece of the project to add character to the project to set a stage for the copper towers and the contractor was very happy with the immaculate finish that was achieved by the Phoenix UK Group.
“Phoenix Brickwork delivered the podium feature brickwork on Coventry VITA, a very complex design constructed along a radius spanning the length of the building which included feature panels and challenging projecting brickwork details. This was completed to a very high standard, whilst ensuring a key eye for quality control, health and safety management and overall client satisfaction." -Bowmer and Kirkland Contracts Manager Alex Reynolds
Our Brickwork Construction Director Jason Brockett added, "This was a challenging project at times but well worth the efforts when you see the quality of the end result. A massive well done to all involved."
It has been an honour completing the brickwork and working on another project with Bowmer and Kirkland Ltd and we look forward to many more.
