The University of Liverpool has gained planning permission for a £90m student accommodation scheme at its Greenbank halls.
The job, which will be run by the University of Liverpool Construction Company Special Projects team, involves building new halls of residence, demolishing old ones and refurbishing Derby Hall.
Its in-house construction team was formed at the time of the collapse of student accommodation specialist Ocon to finish a major student hall project at the university.
The latest student village scheme will deliver 1,370 new or refurbished rooms in total and include a two-storey sports hall.
It forms part of a £250m masterplan by the university to build and upgrade accommodation at its city and Mossley Hill base.
New housing blocks are to be set around three landscaped courtyards and will rise to 5-8 storeys.
The site contains a mix of buildings including Greenbank House, the Grade II* listed former home of the Rathbones, founding members of the University of Liverpool and Derby Old Court, the first hall of residence on the site.
The project team also includes quantity surveyor Gleeds, WYG on mechanical and Electrical engineering, Sutcliffes for structural engineering and RLF as construction manager.
The planning approval has been approved subject to a section 106 agreement.
