Graham to manage design and build of Edinburgh student accommodation scheme

The scheme occupies a corner plot on Montrose Terrace and West Norton Place, and will see the creation of a new building.

Graham has secured a contract from Glencairn Properties for managing the design and construction of a student accommodation scheme in Abbeyhill, Edinburgh.

56three Architects will act as the architect for the scheme while Will Rudd Davidson was appointed as the consultant engineer.

Under the contract, the contractor will provide 149-bed student studios and cluster flats.

They will help address the demand for continued student accommodation.

Graham Building division regional managing director Gary Holmes said: “Glencairn Properties has a track record of delivering high-quality homes and we are very pleased to work with their team to deliver the Montrose Terrace scheme as they expand their purpose-built student accommodation portfolio.

“Graham’s expertise across the student accommodation sector will bring a wealth of knowledge to the build. Edinburgh’s world-renowned universities and colleges drive a significant volume of investment within the city and it is important that there is the correct level of accommodation to match student intake, which Montrose Terrace will help to achieve.”

The development occupies a corner plot on Montrose Terrace and West Norton Place and will see the creation of a sympathetically designed building.

The energy-efficient building will feature quality finishes and offer multi-use common areas, cycle storage, laundry facilities, a gym and a community room, as well as underground bin facilities.

In June 2020, the City of Edinburgh Council approved a planning application for the scheme, which is slated for completion next year.

Glencairn Properties managing director Daryl Teague said: “We are thrilled to get underway to deliver prime student accommodation in the heart of the city, transforming a currently derelict site into a space that is cleverly designed for modern-day lifestyle habits.”
