The contractor has been appointed by student housing developer Alumno to refurbish the Edwardian buildings that used to house New College Durham until it relocated to new purpose-built facilities at Framwellgate Moor in 2007.

The development has been designed by architect Howarth Litchfield to accommodate 418 Durham University students with a mix of en-suite bedrooms, studios and accessible bedrooms.

Kier Construction area operations manager Gary Dobson said:  “This site is situated within a private residential development and we will be working closely with the residents’ committee – establishing a drop-in centre once the project is live- to enable them to discuss with our project team any queries and concerns they may have.”
