The Glasshouse

The Glasshouse

PWP Building Services were contracted by Derwent Living Housing Association for The Glasshouse, an innovative high-rise student village based in Nottingham city centre. Ideally placed for Nottingham Trent University students, the village comprises 600 standard and en-suite rooms, including a secure car park and ground floor retail outlets.

PWP provided a full design, installation and commissioning package for all electrical and mechanical services. As part of the £2.2m Design and Build contract also undertaken in conjunction with Thomas Fish and Sons Ltd, PWP installed and commissioned specialist voice and data facilities for each student unit, a 24 hour security and ‘secure fob’ reader entry system, security services for the multi-level car park and the infrastructure for ground level retail units.

"The Glasshouse is fantastic for students – it has a striking design, great facilities and the perfect location."

David Hargreaves, Director, FHP Student Living
