Project Description

This high profile project is located on Hagley Road in Birmingham and was set to bring an important building back into active use. The scheme involved the provision of 149 studio bedrooms, seven common rooms, basement bike parking and a 6000 sq ft ground floor retail unit. The fast track student accommodation project was delivered on time for the 2016 intake and provides self catering facilities for all students, en-suite bathrooms, mini fitted kitchens and lounge areas. The project was delivered in a busy part of the city centre so Shaylor Group maintained close liaison with Birmingham City Council in order to obtain relevant road closures and permits.


"We purchased a typical 1960’s concrete office block with the vision of turning it into modern student accommodation studios with 6,000 sqft of retail space on the ground floor. During the tender process I found the Shaylor Group team to be very honest, and I also liked the fact they challenged the other consultants I had employed, which reduced the contract sum. The build programme ran smoothly and the Project Manager was excellent and kept me informed during the duration of the 50 week project. The project was delivered to a high standard and on time, and I’ve been really impressed with the aftercare team. This has been our first major development with Shaylor Group and I’m pleased to say that the experience has been a good one."
