Interserve builds student accommodation at Leamington Spa

Interserve

Interserve has been awarded a £10.6 million contract by Alumno Developments to design and build two new student accommodation buildings in Leamington Spa. They will be next to the Grand Union Canal and close to the University of Warwick.

There will be two 4-storey buildings with 187 high-quality bedrooms for students — including a mix of en-suite, standard and studio rooms. Some rooms will be accessible by wheelchairs.

The development will feature a contemporary central reception area, which will provide secure access for students and shared common rooms and amenity spaces.

Interserve has also been contracted to make improvements to the canal-side environment and create a new green park area along the towpath.

Work has started on site, with project completion due in September 2017. Interserve hopes to achieve a BREEAM ‘Very good’ rating for the project.
