New £1.8m contract to provide accessible student flats


We’re delighted to be working on a new project in Chillingham Road in the Heaton area of Newcastle Upon Tyne. This new build project will bring student accommodation & shops to the area.

The project which is worth £1.8 million is an exciting contract for us and for the area.

The new building will consist of two ground floor retail units ( which are to be occupied by Sainsbury’s & Gregg’s ), with two floors of student accommodation built over. In addition the ground floor will also house a new electrical sub-station. One of the apartments will be fully accessible to cater for disabled students.

Due to complete in December 2017, the development will feature six self-contained student flats which will each sleep three students.

“We’re delighted to be working on this contract which will bring both employment & much needed inclusive student accommodation to this area of Newcastle. It’s great to be involved in a project that will support the local community.”
— Bryan Watson, Project Director at J3

Work on the contract will be carried out over a 46 week period and should provide minimal disruption to the surrounding area.
