Balfour Beatty has completed the construction of the £32 million Foundry Courtyard student accommodation in Glasgow.

The construction firm delivered the residence in time for the 2017-18 academic year within just twenty-one months.

The student accommodation consists 536 en-suite bedrooms, split between 70 cluster flats and 149 studios.

Situated on Kennedy Street, the development also comes equipped with a gym, cinema room, study pods and social games area, along with a secure private courtyard.

Commenting on the development, Ian Woosey, investment director for Balfour Beatty Investments, said: "We are looking forward to welcoming the new students to their new accommodation for the start of the academic year. The feedback we have had from the students who are viewing and booking into the new facilities is that they love the stylish communal areas and are looking forward to enjoying the generous outdoor space between the buildings. The accommodation truly offers a variety of amenities to enable students to enjoy every moment of their education."

The accommodation will be managed by industry specialists Fresh Student Living and will be welcoming students to the site for the upcoming academic year.
