The redevelopment of Cryfields Student Village at the University of Warwick will see 828 new bedrooms provided across 12 buildings including townhouses and cluster blocks.
The £57m Student Village development also includes a ‘village hall’ which will contain meeting areas, offices, a laundrette and post room.
Rilmac Scaffolding will be on site for up to two years, providing continual access scaffolding for Kier who are the developers of this key project.
Having worked closely with Kier for many years Rilmac say they are ideally suited to ensure the required high standards and professional delivery are met.
This prestigious new contract increases Rilmac’s involvement in higher education development projects to more than half a dozen currently working on-site or recently completed.
With the marketplace for student accommodation growing 17% annually, Rilmac expect that there are more opportunities on the horizon as well.
“We are experienced in long-running projects on large construction sites like Cryfields Village,” said Sam McSpadden Director at Rilmac Scaffolding
“We are looking forward to progressing at the University of Warwick. Kier’s confidence in us to deliver on site underlines the hard work everyone at Rilmac has put in over the past few years to develop our capabilities in this area.”
“This is another major development we have become involved in across the country,” added Rilmac Scaffolding Managing Director Des Booth, “Congratulations to everyone in the team who made this possible.”
Since Rilmac Scaffolding launched back in 1990 the firm has grown from a six-man operation to a nationwide business, employing over 150 people, and working on many key construction projects nationwide.
