This is an £18 million Design and Build contract to construct a 348 room student complex.

Nobles commenced this project in 2017 at the site of our previous head office.

We demolished the existing buildings and formed the piled foundations along with the structural steel frame.

We subsequently erected a seven-story and a six-story block which contains 348 student rooms.  These are split into 74 studios and 274 “cluster rooms”.  They also house the associated student communal spaces and facilities.

The facade combines traditional brickwork with rendered elevations. Externally we completed all hard and soft landscaping.

A static completion date for a new term meant a fixed programme which had to accommodate several challenges.

These include poor site access and an adjacent school.  We also had a requirement to complete ground remediation to the surrounding residential areas.
