R&B SUPPLIES NORTHAMPTON UNIVERSITY – DUCT ACCESS CHAMBERS
R&B UK JT LTD has recently supplied the new waterside campus at Northampton university with over 120 Compass Highway duct access chambers including bespoke badged ductile iron covers and frames. R&B worked closely with engineers on site to overcome some unusual requirements regarding duct entry size and volume, realising new potential and applications for the Compass Highway product.
The University of Northampton has committed to creating a new campus for its ever-widening community, in the heart of Northampton. Waterside Campus, opening in September 2018, will provide state-of-the-art academic facilities for 15,000 students, residential facilities for 1,200 students and leisure facilities open to the community.
The innovative £330m Waterside Campus will transform a 58 acre brownfield site in Northampton’s Waterside Enterprise Zone. The area is in close proximity to the town centre, a short walk away through the town’s Cultural Quarter and past the University’s St John’s Halls of Residences, opened in 2014.
