Arran house Student Accommodation

The Brief

GSA decided to utilise a vacant retail space on the ground floor of their eight-floor building, to create a new six-bedroom student accommodation cluster with communal kitchen and the formation of a new social space for the whole building.

The student accommodation on the above seven floors was fully occupied during the project. Looking for a well-respected and technology-led approach, RFM were chosen to design, refurbish and internally reorganise the former retail space.

Our Approach

Starting with detailed plans and creating pre-construction visualisations, RFMs team then utilised our project management software to organise the full transformation process.

Works included:

  • Strip out and alterations
  • Blockwork partition
  • Metal stud partitions
  • Internal doors
  • Suspended ceilings
  • Floor finishes
  • Fixed and loose furniture
  • Masonry sleeper walls
  • Raised timber floor
  • Plastering
  • MF ceiling
  • Painting

Outcome

The site team worked closely with GSA to safely deliver a first-class student community space which completes the Arran House complex. The shared student social space features booths and games areas and provides the students with extra space to get together.

The six new bedrooms have turned the disused retail space into comfortable and modern accommodation for students from the start of the new term.
