Aberdeen student accommodation shortlisted for BREEAM 2018 Award

The Fraser Studios student accommodation at Causewayend in Aberdeen, overseen by Hardies Property & Construction Consultants for developer Visage Properties, has been shortlisted for a BREEAM 2018 award as one of the best examples of sustainable design and construction completed over the last year.

Shortlisted in the commercial, design stage category, the 173-unit Causewayend project is a cutting-edge pre-fabricated panelised system construction which achieved BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ and is testament to a cohesive project team, which included Robertson Construction and GWP Architects.

Murray Warner, Partner at Hardies and project manager, said: “This project was a great success, completing the works ahead of the 2017 student intake and on budget. The key to success was ensuring the project team shared common goals and worked together in a collaborative manner to overcome the inevitable challenges that were thrown up.”

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment.
