Aston University Student Village


Aston University



The Challange

Demolition of existing accommodation blocks at Aston University paved the way for the major development of a brand new student facility which required the full installation of all electrical works.  Right from the word go, this complex project posed a wealth of challenges.

Firstly, the campus was situated in the heart of Birmingham, a stone’s throw from the city’s main shopping and commercial district.  Not only that, but construction was taking place right in the middle of the bustling University campus, which meant it was vital to keep disruptions to a minimum for students, personnel and visitors, as well as the wider community.  The project also needed to be completed on time and in readiness for the new influx of students.

The Outcome

Successful collaboration with all partners, stakeholders, and associated parties resulted in all of the specified electrical works being carried out on time, on budget, and to the highest quality standards – providing a welcome and esteemed addition to the existing Aston University campus.

Thank you to your support on delivering this project. Your team worked well with other trades on a just-in-time basis to deliver over 1,000 bedroom student accommodation on time and within the budget constraints of the project.
