Tyne Student Living
Client: The Mansion Group
Project: Student Accommodation
The existing building is located on City Road in Newcastle Upon Tyne and consisted of three blocks of 8-storey student accommodation located around a central courtyard.
This major project was split into two distinct phases. Phase 1 involved the refurbishment of the existing building to form new studios from existing cluster flats and redundant staff rooms, resulting in a total of 77 newly refurbished rooms, which is 33 more than previously available. A new common room was created in redundant storage space to provide additional amenity areas. The external façade of the building was re-clad using new powder coated aluminium cladding panels.
Phase 2 was a new build construction forming 40 studio rooms.
