A topping out ceremony is to be held by Create Construction and Niveda, marking a key milestone for a student accommodation development.

The ceremony is to take place at their Norton Street development in Liverpool and is being hosted by key members of management.

The new student accommodation is situated close to both John Moores University and the University of Liverpool campuses.

Once finished, the Calico building will provide 220,000 sq ft across 2 blocks. It will also come equipped with a gym, social areas, laundry facilities and ground floor retail units. The site will be managed by Fresh Student Living and is already being advertised for the 2019-20 academic year.

Commenting on the build, Bhavik Jayendrakumar Shah, director at Niveda Group said: "The topping out ceremony marks an exciting milestone for the construction of Calico and we are thrilled to see how well it is progressing."

"Calico is an important scheme for our organisation and an exciting addition to Liverpool, where there is high demand for quality student accommodation. This innovative scheme has already proven highly desirable by both local and international students looking for the best student accommodation experience in town."

Create Construction continue to expand their pipeline of work and recently secured a second student accommodation project in Renshaw Street, Liverpool, which is due for completion in 2020.
