FM Operator Sought for Largest Student Development in Swansea

Company News, Tenders, Real Estate, Real Estate Management
Developers Oldway Swansea are inviting expressions of interest from experienced facilities management operators to manage a 556-unit student accommodation development scheduled to open in time for the 2019 academic year.

 

The development, on the city’s Orchard Street, will be known as the Oldway Centre and building work has now commenced. It will also provide a welcome boost to Swansea's under-supplied student housing market.

 

Llanelli-based contractor WRW Construction is now on site undertaking preliminary works for the 187,000 sq ft development, representing an investment of £35m by Midos Group, owners of Oldway Swansea.  The architects are Cardiff-based Lawray Architects.

 

The scheme is in a prime city centre location, rising to 13 storeys with spectacular views and offers a mixture of cluster and studio accommodation.  The development will feature a private courtyard with bicycle storage and dedicated communal areas to encourage collaborative working and socialising.  The scheme is opposite the city’s main railway station and minutes from both the retail core and the University of Wales Trinity St David campus.

 

Andrew Machin, of project managers Broadfield said: “A search is now underway for an experienced operator to work with us to deliver and manage the scheme in time for its opening at the start of the 2019 autumn term.”
