Client: University of Manchester
We have been contracted to construct 8 multi-storey student accommodation blocks including a Warden’s flat and Energy Centre, amenity hub, landscaping and external works. Each residence will have 10 bedrooms per floor with ensuite bathroom pods and a shared kitchen. 1,122 student rooms are spread over the blocks with a combined floor area of 32,020m2.
The new student residences will be completed just in time for the start of the 2019/2020 academic year, in response to the demand for more people wanting to live on the campus. The Hall of Residence is named after Ron Unsworth who studied History at the University, was an Olympic hurdler in the 1940s, and went on to be a long-standing advocate of University of Manchester sports development and the Athletics Union.
