Main contractor Galliford Try has chosen the specialist to undertake M&E work on its £52.5m development in Paradise Street, Coventry.
The new halls will be built across three blocks of three, 12 and 14 storeys on the site of a former garage close to the city centre, with an additional two low-rise house blocks.
Further landscaping will also be created including a recreational area for the students, as well as office and maintenance facilities for the proposed management company AXO Student Living.
J Tomlinson will design, supply, install and commission the mechanical, electrical and plumbing services for the project by Galliford Try’s Building East Midlands business, which has been appointed by The Elite Group to develop the scheme.
Tony O’Toole, J Tomlinson’s managing director – mechanical and electrical, said: “This is a key contract for our M&E team and throughout the bid we used our ‘One Team’ approach for all items, working collaboratively alongside our customers and suppliers.
“We have a good working relationship with Galliford Try and are delighted to be part of the team bringing this scheme to life.”
The project is due to start shortly, with completion expected in August 2019.
