THE TASK
Our drafting services involved the mechanical services drafting and overall services coordination.

THE CHALLENGE
This project was a design and construct contract, with spatial challenges within the building envelope. Being student accommodation, space for services was at a premium, requiring innovative solutions to services coordination.

THE SOLUTION
As such, coordination of the services within the apartments required a high level of cooperation between trades, in conjunction with building design. Regular workshops were conducted by Drafting Solutions to integrate services within the structure and architectural form of the building.
