Metnor Construction has a tremendous amount of experience in the provision of student accommodation and have been involved for several years on the Portland Road development site in the Shieldfield area of Newcastle. This is a large scale project on a remediated brownfield site which will ultimately form a purpose made student village providing facilities for the city’s growing student population.
Our student accommodation projects have been extremely well received by both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities, with high occupancy rates as soon as completed and by incorporating retail elements into the final designs, we have also been able to contribute to the growth and wellbeing of the existing local community.
Our sector knowledge has resulted in additional opportunities elsewhere in the UK and in addition to the ongoing developments in Newcastle, we are currently constructing a £19m student accommodation project in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey.
We are able to offer a full design and build package and if required by the client, can provide a full turn-key service, supplying all the fixtures and fittings including beds, case goods, loose furniture, and white goods.
Metnor Construction have acquired a practical understanding of the requirements, needs and aspirations of both the accommodation providers and the students themselves and this has been has been developed through by working closely with clients, designers and specialist consultants over many years.
