London Student Halls Now Open!
A new £35m student accommodation block on Mile End Road in East London is now officially open. The original design was developed to completion by Jefferson Sheard Architects for our client HG Construction.
This state-of-the-art student accommodation and teaching building was developed by HG Construction’s clients Grosvenor House Group and INTO University Partnerships.
The building is outlined by a copper canopy creating a golden-edged visual effect, and the project not only includes student accommodation but also teaching facilities on the lower and ground floors. Consisting of three blocks which are tiered in height, the design addresses the Government’s sustainability agenda by incorporating sedum roofing on two of the tiers.
Nick Campfield, Project Team Leader at Mile End Road, said “This was a challenging project in terms of the completion timescale made more challenging by limited access and constructing over a Tube tunnel. It was a great team effort and definitely worth all the hard work. The design and quality of finish achieved exceeded the original brief.”
Jefferson Sheard were appointed directly following their successful design and completion of a student accommodation project for HG at Tufnell Park, Islington and the two companies are currently collaborating upon three further student accommodation projects in London and the South East.
