The Foundry is a new modular five story student accommodation building, described as “the perfect student base for exploring everything Newcastle has to offer.”
Gleeds provided cost management, quantity surveying and health and safety services on the project.
The development itself began with demolition of the previous existing warehouse, and the design, construction and completion of new premium student accommodation. The building is built around a central atrium and contains 207 bedrooms (including 150 ensuite, 55 studios and 2 accessibility rooms). All ensuite bedrooms are provided with shared communal facilities, with studio rooms provided with kitchenette facilities.
At ground floor level, general communal space and ancillary services can be found, as well as a reception area, security room and laundry areas.
