Collegelands, Glasgow

Client: Watkin Jones Group
Project Value: £29,600,000
Architect: Manson Architects
Practical Completion: August 2011

This development comprised the construction of 588 student study bedrooms including 565 en-suite bedrooms and 23 self-contained studio flats over nine storeys. There is also a 260m² retail unit.

Within the building’s footprint two courtyards were formed affording residents their own secure outdoor space whilst still maintaining privacy.

In addition, a canal water feature was constructed to the south elevation of the building which spans the entire length of the building; this has proved to be an interesting and successful feature.
