Following the demolition of existing student halls earlier this year, the new state-of-the-art accommodation will consist of seven blocks which will house 1,164 student rooms.
As well as the core accommodation facilities, the scheme will include refurbishment of the Grade II listed Freeman’s Cottages for office and study space, in addition to the construction of a 500-space multi-storey carpark and the formation of a new 9,000m2 teaching and learning centre.
It is anticipated that the project will take up to 3-years to complete.
Michael George, Managing Director at Mick George Ltd said: ‘’We have delivered contracting services for several similar higher educational projects, all of which have played an integral part in improving the experience for Students at the respective Universities. We’re certain that will be no different on this occasion.’’
