Cowley Road, Oxford

This project at Cowley Road in Oxford comprised of the construction of 112 student accommodation units together with cycle storage and associated landscaping, giving 33,300 sq ft over a 1,700 sq m site. This property was a part of the redevelopment of the former Go – Ahead bus depot on Cowley Road and Glanville Road, Oxford.

Health and Safety issues included having to coordinate access and egress arrangements  with the adjacent site. The project was split into two phases which meant that some accommodation units were released ahead of others. We had to ensure that there was safe access for the students of the first phase whilst construction continued on the second phase.
