Manchester Metropolitan University has appointed Kier to deliver a 491-bed student accommodation scheme.

The project will result in the construction of three blocks of purpose-built student accommodation and represents the second scheme Kier has been awarded from Manchester Metropolitan as part of its Estates Masterplan.

The proposed accommodation is located at Manchester Met's newest campus, Birley Fields in Hulme.

Kier previously delivered 6 Great Marlborough Street, a facility to provide a smart, attractive environment designed to accommodate professional services teams from across the university to encourage collaborative working.

The ground floor will come equipped with a start-of-the-art gym, as well as study areas.

Managing Director for Kier North West, Peter Commins, said: "This project is a key part of supporting the growing number of students attending Manchester Met and it's our privilege to be again working with the University."

"We are currently delivering 1,345 student beds in projects across the North and are looking forward to continuing our positive working relationship with Manchester Met and utilising our local supply chain throughout this build."
