Nolan Associates


Project Overview

Nolan Associates were responsible for the design of all the civil and structural engineering for the 16 and 21 storey tower structures and the three 7 storey wings with 725 beds in total.

The towers are linked at each level with a glazed walkway incorporating an movement joint to allow both buildings to move independently.
