Ogilvie Construction has successfully completed a £33 million student residence in Glasgow’s West End on behalf of Bricks Capital for their ‘true’ student accommodation brand.
Built on the site of former warehousing at Kelvinhaugh Street, the 589 bedroom facility consists of three separate blocks of between 5 and 9 storeys constructed above a semi basement parking space.
One block was created using traditional steel and lightweight steel framing, with the other two blocks built using a volumetric modular container system pre-fabricated and fully fitted out off-site and assembled on arrival in Glasgow.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said:
“We are proud to have been involved in such an innovative construction project in the city. The building provides a uniquely modern environment for students in Glasgow, completed to the highest standard and incorporating the latest sustainable materials and design.”
Marc Carter, Managing Director at true, said:
“This brand new development offers state-of-the-art accommodation and amenities to provide with the very best in student living. Ogilvie Construction has completed this complex and innovative development on schedule and to a very high standard.”
Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group, one of Scotland’s most consistently successful family owned businesses. The company is over 60 years old and employs over 400 people across its various business operations.
