We have developed in excess of 1,000 student beds on sites which we own in the Shieldfield area of Newcastle.
In 2010 we were engaged by Northumbria University to develop the Winn Studios site in Shieldfield into a 396 bed student accommodation block. The building achieved BREEAM Very Good status and was handed over to the University on time and within budget. In 2012 we commenced development of the 274 room Turner Court building, again in the Shieldfield area of Newcastle, which was completed in time to open for the 2013/14 academic year and achieved BREEAM Excellent status and secured by design accreditation. This development is being managed under the DIGS brand by South Street Asset Management, a national operator with similar schemes across the UK. In 2014 we commenced development of a 338 bed building, Rosedale Court, which is scheduled to open in time for the 2015/16 academic year .
