Student Accommodation Projects

East Durham College, Houghall Campus


Client: Robertson Construction

Project Description:

We were appointed to carry out full Building Control services on this multi-million-pound scheme to modernise and refurbish East Durham College’s Houghall Campus. We worked with Robertson Construction on the erection of a 198-bed student accommodation block and the refurbishment of Weardale House, an original student housing block built in 1938. The refurbishment brought the building back into use in the form of twenty-four studio bedrooms. The new development provides high standard facilities for students studying in and around Durham.
