Vita Group has chosen Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure to deliver its second Vita Student scheme in the Midlands.
Work on the £24 million development, located on Station Street in Nottingham, is now underway with the project expected to complete in time for the new academic year in 2020.
The main contractor is also building the only other Vita Scheme in the Midlands, Vita Birmingham, which topped out in October (2018).
The construction company is delivering both projects through the Vita framework, which it was appointed to earlier this year.
Designed by architect Fuse Studios, the 101,375 sq ft development will benefit from excellent connectivity, being situated next to Nottingham train station.
Sharing the same modern aesthetic of all Vita schemes, the building is split into three tiered towers of six, eight and ten storeys each, housing 319 apartments.
Almost 6,000 sq ft has been designated as communal hub space for collaboration and socialising. There will also be a coffee bar, separate study rooms and private, bookable lounges.
Richard Fielding, area director at Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure in the Midlands, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to be delivering Select’s first scheme in Nottingham. They’re a great customer and we’ve built a strong and collaborative relationship through our work on the framework, and our ongoing construction of Vita Birmingham.
“The student accommodation market in Nottingham is buoyant, driven by the continued growth of the two first-class universities the city boasts. Select has secured an excellent site next to the station and the apartments will undoubtedly prove a popular choice for bright and discerning academic minds.”
Other consultants involved in the scheme include engineering and environmental firm, BWB Consulting and mechanical and engineering company, Drayton Beaumont Services.
