Create Construction has joined forces with Bricks Capital to create two student accommodation developments in Swansea and Salford Quays.

The developments will be marketed under the True student brand, with Create bringing its experience in delivering high-volume accommodation, helping support Bricks Capital with their expertise in land appraisal and build delivery.

The Swansea project consists of a £34m contract to build a 706-bed student development. The site will contain 484 individual suits, 192 ensuite rooms with shared kitchens and lounges, as well as 30 additional accessible rooms. The development will also come equipped with a cinema, library, gym and large recreation area.

The £24.5m scheme in Salford consists of 402 student beds, along with a coffee shop, library, lounge, and media and gaming area.

Both projects are due to open in time for the 2020-21 academic year.

CEO of Create Construction, Paul Mathison, said: "Our partnership with Bricks Developments is a very exciting opportunity for both companies to work closely together in the student and hotel sectors."

"With the same core values of 'Integrity', 'creativity' and 'easy to do business with' - we are looking forward to a successful partnership in the delivery of the two projects, as well as working with together on other prestigious projects."
