New build and refurbishment to create 353 student beds

New build and refurbishment to create 353 bed student accommodation development.  

Working with: London & Scottish Investments, RG Group, Cunniff Design and Tier Consult Engineers


The scheme has delivered 353 beds across three separate blocks. We carried out a full pre-construction role on a conversion of 6 storey office building into 9 storey, 181 bedroom student accommodation providing a mixture of studio and cluster flats. 
Two 8-9 storey new build blocks were constructed providing 172 additional rooms. The new blocks were constructed with a concrete frame with brickwork and rainscreen clad facade. In our role as pre-construction managers we worked through inefficiencies of the previous design and worked collaboratively with the client and whole project team to achieve a bespoke product of studio apartments.  A key role was to get the scheme from mid planning design to start on site within 13 weeks. 
How we made a difference
  • we delivered the targeted start on site
  • we submitted the revised scheme for planning within six weeks
  • our redesigned scheme included more premium studio apartments which increased the client’s potential revenue
