New 88-room student accommodation scheme for Nottingham

Norwich Union House

Clegg Construction has completed a multi-million pound scheme to create new student accommodation in Nottingham city centre.

The Nottingham-based company was the main build contractor for the redevelopment of a 1950s office block overlooking Old Market Square.

The £3.3m scheme, for RedOak Property, saw the upper floors of Norwich Union House in South Parade converted into 88 studio rooms.

Simon Blackburn, managing director of Clegg Construction, said: “We’re really pleased to have worked on this high quality project with the developer and for it to be ready in time for new students coming to university in Nottingham in September.

“Student accommodation is a primary sector for Clegg Construction, this scheme is one of three similar projects our teams have been working on, totalling £23m and providing more than 400 rooms in three cities.”

Construction Management students from Nottingham Trent University visited the site as part of one of their modules, which included a tour by the site manager and the opportunity to gain an insight into the development.

Clegg Construction is also on site in Derby’s Friar Gate creating a £10.9m 244 bedroom student apartment building for developers Jensco (Derby).
