The Greenbank Site is a student village, for use by the 490 undergraduate students of the University of Liverpool. With its historic parkland grounds, listed mansion house and individual residences, the village makes up part of a lively community of approximately 500 students.
Brand new student accommodation
The Greenbank Site, found on Greenbank Lane in Liverpool, is a large area owned by the University of Liverpool, and used for students and student accommodation.
In early 2016, HA Civils began one of several contracts in the area, which would eventually help lead to the complete refurbishment of the area.
The complex package of redevelopment saw six buildings (Derby House, Rathbone Hall, Rathbone House, Warden’s House, Warden’s Court and Roscoe & Gladstone Halls) replaced by three new student accommodation blocks. Derby Hall, Rathbone Hall and Gladstone Hall, which all take advantage of their unique setting and opens key sight lines and accessibility across the site.
The new build student accommodation created 1,370 en-suite bedrooms in total and is part of a £250m masterplan by the University to build and upgrade accommodation at its city and Mossley Hill base.
HA Civils were appointed to carry out earthworks, drainage works, retaining structures, external works, hard landscaping, public realm and Section 278 highway works packages on the project. The award winning public spaces and landscaped amphitheatre form a focal point and relaxing sanctuary for the resident students. A mix of high quality paving materials, coloured macadam paving and lush green lawns contrast to provide public spaces that not only add to the aesthetic of the university, but also combine a mixture of forward thinking design with visuals that also pay tribute to the designs of previous builds.
