Procurement: Design & Build

Rydon successfully delivered a significant new 169 bedroom student accommodation development in Bath city centre for developer James House LTD.

The project is in the heart of Georgian Bath, a short distance from the historic bath Roman Baths and Abbey and adjacent to the listed Green Park Station. 

It involved the careful demolition of two existing office buildings, replacing these with a development comprising a combination of studio bedrooms with kitchenettes, and townhouses incorporating communal living space; providing 169 units in total.

Students within the new complex have a range of facilities at hand including a gym, laundry, communal rooms and 56 dedicated cycle spaces.

Furthermore, work to this scheme was taking place in a central and busy location, requiring careful logistical planning and consideration to the neighbours in the vicinity of the building work.

External features of the construction will use materials sympathetic to the local vernacular, including Bath stone with zinc and copper cladding panels.
