Work commences on site for Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst residential scheme

Works have commenced on site to create an additional 191 beds at Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) Brackenhurst Campus.

Faithful+Gould, member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is providing project management and cost management services. We also appointed the design team, pre-contract, for the £12.5m development.

This new scheme will sit adjacent to the existing residences to make an accommodation village and forms part of the University’s wider strategy to redevelop its Brackenhurst Campus. New academic and student facilities, residential accommodation, increased car parking, and improvements to the services infrastructure for the campus form part of these plans.

In addition to the residential scheme, we are also supporting NTU’s masterplan by providing project management and cost management services on their flagship reception and environment centre. We have also supported the University in costing the Brackenhurst Masterplan feasibility schemes and on pre-contract work on the new 198 space car park.

Paula Marritt, senior project manager at SNC-Lavalin’s Faithful+Gould business, and project management lead on the scheme, said: “We’re delighted to be once again working alongside Nottingham Trent University. Our appointment reflects the successful relationship we have developed with the University as well as our experience in the education sector.”

Works are due to complete in readiness for the 2019/20 academic year.
