UK-based Galliford Try’s building division has been selected as preferred bidder for two student accommodation projects worth £102M in the UK.

The unit has been awarded a contract by Newcastle University to build the new £62M Park View Student Village.

The project will include the replacement of the existing 1970s buildings in Richardson Road, Newcastle and the construction of 1,279 study bedrooms across six buildings, ranging from four to ten floors, along with a new energy centre.

The second contract awarded by Regents Godiva will see the construction of a new £40M project for Coventry University. Located at Godiva Place, the 24,500sq m development will create a 770-bedroom facility along with support facilities and a car and cycle parking for students.

Galliford Try CEO Peter Truscott said: "We are delighted to have been chosen by Newcastle University and Regents Godiva to deliver such significant schemes.

"Higher education is a key sector for us and our success here in being selected for these contracts is a reflection of the capability we have demonstrated in producing high-quality accommodation and housing for a range of clients across the country."
