Morgan Sindall starts on £13m Roehampton deal

Morgan Sindall has started on a £13m student accommodation scheme for the University of Roehampton in the grounds of the Grade II listed Downshire House.

The project is a part of the University’s wider masterplan to expand and improve campus facilities and will involve the construction of three four storey blocks.

The development is expected to complete in summer 2015. The project will provide a variety of flat types.

Dave Cook, area director for Morgan Sindall, said: “Providing first-class on-campus accommodation is increasingly important for universities operating in this highly competitive sector and Morgan Sindall is well versed in successfully delivering high-quality schemes of this nature.” 

Some architectural features in the grounds, including the formal gardens, balustrade, and the summer house, will be retained as part of the wider development.

The Grade II listed sculpture ‘The Watchers’, which was removed following vandalism in 2006, reinstated.
