The Wales division of Midas Construction has been awarded the contract to convert four buildings at Fitzalan Court on Cardiff’s Newport Road into student halls of residence.
Works include a two-storey roof extension designed by Holder Mathias Architects as well as a new courtyard area and the re-modelling of an existing basement car park to provide additional space for facilities and parking. Completion is expected in summer 2017
Quantity surveyor for the project is Chandler KBS and structural engineer is Shear Design.
Derek Quinn, executive director at Midas Construction’s Wales division, said: “This is another significant project for the group in the city, following on from the £12m student accommodation project we are currently delivering in Cardiff’s Oxford Street.
The Fitzalan scheme is a joint venture between McLaren Group and Cardiff-based developers PMG. Midas previously built the Twerton Mill student living site in Bath for McLaren.
