Start Date: August 2017
Completion Date: September 2018
Form of Contract: JCT Design and Build 2015
This logistically challenging project involved the part demolition, refurbishment, and extension of an existing building fronting Crwys Road. During the works to the existing ground, floor shops were carried out in a phased sequence to allow the shops to be kept live, whilst the top two floors of the existing building were removed, and a new three-story student accommodation block was constructed above. On completion, the building housed 21 high-quality student apartments accessed from a new entrance at the rear of the building.
