Lincolnshire’s Rilmac Scaffolding has scooped a major contract on the redevelopment of Cryfields Student Village at the University of Warwick.
The project will see 828 new bedrooms provided across 12 buildings including townhouses and cluster blocks.
The new development also includes a ‘village hall’ which will contain meeting areas, offices, a laundrette and post room.
Rilmac Scaffolding will be on site for up to two years, providing continual access scaffolding for Kier who are the developers for this project.
This new contract increases Rilmac’s involvement in higher education development projects to more than half a dozen currently working on site or recently completed. With the marketplace for student accommodation growing 17% annually there are more opportunities on the horizon as well.
Sam McSpadden Director at Rilmac Scaffolding said: “We are experienced in long running projects on large construction sites like Cryfields Village and we are looking forward to progressing at the University of Warwick.
“Kier’s confidence in us to deliver on site underlines the hard work everyone at Rilmac has put in over the past few years to develop our capabilities in this area.”
