PROJECT NAME: Student Apartments
Location: Duncan Street, Edinburgh
Description of Works:
This development, located close to Edinburgh University, comprised the construction of twenty-nine student accommodation apartments. A unique development as it involved the refurbishing a Category B Listed building to create three of the apartments and the construction of a new building within the courtyard area of the building to form twenty-six apartments.
The new build element was of traditional masonry construction with a large atrium area to allow light to flow into the building. Saunders provided Project Monitoring services for the Funder of this interesting scheme. We worked closely with the project team ensuring the works were managed correctly and that valuations undertaken were reviewed on site prior to certification.
Services: Fund/Project Monitoring Surveyor
Logistically the site was challenging due as construction took place within an area surrounded by existing buildings, which meant works had to be managed carefully.
