Beard is working with Stamford Goldhawk and architect Stride Treglown to develop the four-storey Norfolk House building into 4,500m3 of student accommodation that will provide 152 studio apartments with ensuite showers and fitted furniture. The redeveloped building will also house an on-site gym, cinema and private study rooms.

Energy-saving measures include the installation of solar panels to the roof of the building.

“There is a desperate need for high quality student accommodation in Bristol and this hi-spec refurbishment will make a valuable contribution to meeting this need,” said Beard contracts manager Martin Courtney.
