RICS East Midlands Awards 2019 - Princess Road East, Leicester

Thursday May 16th 2019

We are delighted that our student accommodation scheme, Princess Road East in Leicester, has won an RICS East Midlands Award 2019 in the Commercial category. 

Princess Road East is a high-end student accommodation development of 110 studios plus communal facilities. The four-storey block is a five-minute walk from the University of Leicester and within easy reach of De Montfort University. Each of the 110 self-contained studio bedrooms has en-suite bathrooms. There is also a communal area, cinema room and gym.

The construction features pre-engineered modular bathroom pods which were delivered to the site fully fitted and ready to be installed, significantly reducing construction times.

Princess Road East also incorporates energy-saving technology, including heat recovery ventilation systems and air source heat pumps for hot water heating.

High quality bricks and contemporary glazing emphasised by a dark grey aluminium window surround sit in harmony with the adjoining Grade II listed building fronting De Montfort Square.

We provided cost consultancy, employer's agent and principal designer services.
