Bam Construction Midlands will carry out the second phase of Aston University’s £215 million student accommodation scheme.
The £45m contract, due for completion in 2013, involves the design and build of two blocks of accommodation between four and 18 storeys high, providing 1,053 en-suite student bedrooms and shared facilities.
The demolition of two 1970s accommodation towers in the centre of the university campus was carried out on Sunday 8 May by DSM Demolition, of Birmingham, which is also undertaking site clearance, ground remediation and enabling work.
Two residential blocks, providing 1,300 high-specification en-suite rooms, were constructed by Carillion as part of Phase one.
Construction is expected to start immediately.
