St Marks Student Accommodation Scheme in Lincoln is the first phase of the St Marks regeneration in the city. The scheme consists of 10 new buildings, which will total 1372 new bedrooms spaces. The first phase build cost is circa £70m.
Sertus were involved in early stages with the design of a natural facade smoke ventilation system to suit a unique building structure and design, all controlled with the Sertus Networked Control System (CNS-R).
This project had very specific criteria for the façade louvre product. The units had to blend seamlessly with the rest of the unique façade, whilst maintaining compliance.
Sertus worked with Corstophine+Wright to come up with a compliant solution that complemented the building aesthetic and design requirements.
The glazed louvres were powder coated different colours to match the individual block colour scheme, with a fixed blanking plate at the top to facilitate powder coated fixed louvre blades to match adjacent normal window design; each block was sized differently to match the architectural requirements.
