An extant permission for student accommodation existed on the site, which set a strong precedent for scale, massing and materials for the buildings.
We developed the proposals to increase the numbers on site by 78 – from the original consent of 116 rooms – within the same site boundary.

The project meets the BREEAM Very Good criteria under the 2008 scheme.

‘Willmore Iles provided an excellent level of service on the scheme, in particular in their response to queries and delivering to the project programme; their services provided excellent value to the scheme’ Ron Allen Construction Project Manager University Partnerships programme Ltd
