Clegg Construction has finished a multi-million-pound development scheme to create new student accommodation in the centre of Nottingham.

The Nottingham-based company was the main contractor working on the redevelopment of a 1950s office block just off Old Market Square.

The upper floors of Norwich Union House in South Parade were converted into 88 studio rooms for applicants RedOak Property, at a cost of £3.3m.

Commenting on the build, managing director of Clegg Construction, Simon Blackburn, said: "We're really pleased to have worked on this high-quality project with the developer and for it to be ready in time for new students coming to university in Nottingham in September.

"Student accommodation is a primary sector for Clegg Construction, this scheme is one of three similar projects our teams have been working on, totalling £23m and providing more than 400 rooms in three cities."

Whilst construction was taking place, students from Nottingham Trent University were able to visit the site as part of one of their modules, gaining an insight into the development.

Clegg Construction is on site in Derby's Friar Gate, as it looks to create a £10.9m 244 student apartment building for developers Jensco.
