Lakesmere secures new student accommodation contract

The Lakesmere Group is set to play a key role in the creation of a new student accommodation scheme in Newcastle after winning a £1.9m roofing and cladding contract from BAM Construction.

The scheme is the second to be developed by the BAM Connislow JV, which has been specifically set up to specialise in student accommodation projects. Designed by Xsite Architecture, the £18.4m development comprises three connecting blocks which rise to seven storeys and will provide accommodation for 409 students.

Located in the east of the city on Stoddart Street, the scheme is close to both Northumbria University’s City Campus East and the Newcastle University Campus. Lakesmere North will work alongside the North-East division of BAM Construction to deliver an extensive package of works including the design and installation of the rainscreen, cladding, louvres and hot melt roofing.

Owing to the project location in the heart of the city, early engagement by the Lakesmere team has helped to identify solutions to the site’s limited access and storage space, with the cladding materials anticipated to be secured and stored safely on the roof.

The Lakesmere team will commence work on site in September 2016, with overall completion of the project anticipated for the start of the 2017/18 academic year. With a healthy order book that includes various projects across the North of England, Lakesmere North is also working alongside BAM Construction at the Ruth Gorse Academy, a new state of the art secondary school in Leeds.
