Marlborough has secured a £2.5 million package to build the brickwork and blockwork on ISG’s prestigious Eccleshall Road Project. The £33 million project will provide 568 beds and is located close to the City’s 2 universities.
Residents will benefit from high-specification and spacious communal facilities, including a ninth-floor central club lounge complete with extensive balcony overlooking the city, as well as lounge and study spaces, a café, private dining areas, cinema and gym.
ISG has concluded the demolition of an existing garage structure on the site and has now commenced the construction of the concrete frame building, reaching 14-storeys at its highest elevation, which fronts Ecclesall Road.
The building will feature traditional masonry, with brick feature panels lining its façade. Marlborough will lay over 600,000 bricks in a 45 week programme.
Accommodation is configured around four, five and six bed clusters, as well as a number of studio apartments – all with en-suite facilities.
Every bedroom will benefit from all the latest technologies a student can expect, including super-fast Wi-Fi in all rooms.
ISG will also form car parking spaces for seven retail units, which will occupy the ground floor of the new building – adding to the retail provision of this popular area of Sheffield.
The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
Marlborough’s team will be headed up by Mick Durkin and Tim Lynch with an operational team comprising of in house trained bricklayers and apprentices. Paul Donnelly, Managing Director commented “ During the recession years we concentrated on training and now we are seeing the benefits. We have a great bunch of lads and a team that is committed to achieving the highest quality standards”
