The development, on the site of the former Causewayend School in Aberdeen, will see the listed school building refurbished together with the construction of a new build annexe on the one-acre site.

Each studio unit will be self-contained with its own fully equipped compact kitchenette, en-suite WC/shower room, bed and study area. The highly sustainable design will include a glazed central light well that will enhance the communal ground floor spaces including social break out areas, reception, and FM office.

The project, situated on Spademill Lane, is being undertaken for student developer Visage Properties with Hardies Property and Construction Consultants fulfilling the role of Project Manager and Employer’s Agent.

Murray Warner of Hardies said: “We are delighted to be working on this prestigious £17m project to bring this stand-out student accommodation to Aberdeen. Work has recently started on site as a design and build project with local contractor Robertson Eastern involved in construction of the apartments. When completed in May 2017, the project will be managed by Homes for Students, one of the leading UK providers of student accommodation.

Environmental credentials

The building has a highly sustainable design by student housing specialists Eco-Res and GWP Architects. It is designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, as well as the Scottish Building Regulations ‘Silver Active’ standard.

Transforming communities

The team is also busy engaging with the local community, to make sure they benefit from the project throughout the build stage and beyond. If you want to find out more, why not check out #CausewayendApartments on Twitter, or have a look at our Causewayend Apartments image board on Pinterest?
