Construction of a new high-rise 23 storey building to provide 576 student bed accommodation in a mix of single and twin studio flats with social spaces and a gym, together with associated external works and drainage.

The site is located within the town centre in Portsmouth adjacent the central railway station. The land originally comprised of an existing four storey office block that has been demolished.

Visitors will be given a site induction on arrival and an overall presentation of the project by the site team. This will be followed by an accompanied tour of the site. At this point we will have completed the frame up to the 23rd storey and fantastic views will be possible from the 19th floor roof. Visitors will also be able to see some of the lower floors being fitted out. There will also be an opportunity to take part in an activity with one of our subcontractors.
