Three Sixty Developments, formerly known as Knightsbridge Student Housing Ltd., are a successful Student Housing Company based in London that are expanding their residential and commercial developments to many major cities across Europe.
The current project, located in the heart of Dublin, is a new 471-bed student residence that spans over 2 blocks (ABC & DE) on Thomas Street on the Digital (Binary) Hub campus. There was a need for new student accommodation facilities with the area of Dublin City Centre, creating affordable shared rental options for the growing multi-national student population.
With the planning permission granted in early 2014, Axiseng were commissioned by the design and build M&E contractor, Designer Group to design the project and to continually inspect the project from a BCAR perspective.
Axiseng designed and coordinated the mechanical and electrical services and managed the BCAR element of the Binary Hub Project in line with the client’s requirements documents and performance specifications. The project team visited another Three Sixty student accommodation development in Edinburgh to establish a benchmark and basis of design for the Binary Hub project in Dublin. These principles and in-house design innovation formed the foundation of the project for the Digital Hub Building.
The new development will not only fill the student accommodation shortage in the city, but will also create new jobs, revitalise the area and entice new businesses to the local community.
