Caledonian, working with ENGIE, has secured a €10.8m (£10m) order for new student accommodation at Station Approach, Hereford. The project will provide Hereford College of Arts and the city’s new NMiTE University with 178 student bedrooms each with its own study area and en-suite bathroom, along with other areas of the accommodation. The scheme is expected to be ready for occupation in September 2020.
Paul Lang, Chief Executive Officer at Caledonian Modular, said: “This is the latest multi-million-pound project win for us and further strengthens our already strong presence in the student accommodation sector. We are looking forward to working with all the project partners and local stakeholders to deliver this exciting project.”
Councillor David Hitchiner, Leader of Herefordshire Council, said: “The new student accommodation will provide high-quality purpose-built facilities, making Herefordshire an even more attractive proposition for young people looking to study here. We are delighted that this will support our local higher education providers and promote Herefordshire as a great place to study and live. Station Approach is a key project within the council’s Development and Regeneration Programme (DRP) which will support economic development in the county.”
