Vinci wins £12m Bristol student accommodation deal

Vinci Construction has been appointed by Student Castle to carry out development of the former Bristol Pro Cathedral site into student accommodation.

The project will comprise 229 student units and will involve the construction of a new building comprising a large concrete frame and the part refurbishment of the existing grade II* listed Cathedral, with a structured steel frame erected internally.

Chris Pape, managing director for the building division for midlands, South-west, Wales and retail said: “We welcome the unique challenge that the transformation of the Bristol Pro-Cathedral will provide for Vinci Construction UK. 

“Drawing on all of our experience, we will work closely with Student Castle to ensure that all works are finished to the highest standard on this unique building.”
