Phase one of major student accommodation completes at the University of Warwick in Coventry.
Known as Oaks 1, is located less than a kilometre from the University of Warwick to the south west of Coventry city centre, and was developed by McLaren Property. The project was forward funded by Student Roost who now operate the Accommodation.
Formerly the site of an office building, Oaks 1 brings 378 new student rooms to the area in a mixture of 288 cluster bedrooms and 90 studios, which are within convenient walking distance of the university’s main campus.
The scheme also benefits from over 6,800 sq. ft. of amenity space; comprising an open plan common room and games room, gym and virtual training areas, study areas and social spaces, and has provided significant contributions towards the sustainable transport infrastructure in the area.
The consulting engineer was Howard Ward Associates (HWA) together with project managers Stace and Corstorphine + Wright Architects
