Caddick Construction has been awarded the contract by EBW Developments Limited following the collapse of Marcus Worthington Group.
The complex is made up of 282 en-suite bedrooms in shared apartments with each catering for between four and 16 students. The development will also contain 19 self-contained studios. The development offers 301 student rooms with some specifically designed for students with disabilities.
Each apartment will have a fully fitted kitchen, self-contained unit including a sleeping area, complete with furniture.
The apartments will utilise bathroom pods, which means they will be constructed off-site, but will be lifted into position complete with shower, toilet, and sink.
