This Information Paper describes the design and construction challenges for a replacement student hall of residence on the esplanade of Aberystwyth. The case study focuses on the key features of the project with special attention given to the 5-storey timber-frame structure. The building had to be designed and built in the shortest practicable time, and the listed stone facade of the original building had to be reconstructed to match the neighbouring building. 8 pages.
