Oxford Point


SERVICE: Structural Engineering

Westlakes were appointed by Watkin Jones as the civil/structural engineers for their proposed development at Oxford Road in Bournemouth. The development comprises a multi-storey building, of up to 17 storeys, above a two storey basement car park
which will extend over the entire site footprint.

The provision of below-ground parking was not originally a client requirement for the scheme but was introduced during the consultation process with Bournemouth Borough Council.
As such, the car park evolved to suit the constraints of the superstructure, the extents of which had already been agreed. Some compromises in terms of idealised car park layouts were therefore inevitable as a result
of this design sequence.

The scheme provides a mixed use of office space at lower levels with circa 400 beds of student accommodation to the upper storeys.
