Birmingham based urban developer – Volume.Property – breaks ground this week on phase one of Volume.Works, which consists of 47 spacious studio apartments at its purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) development in Birmingham City Centre. Tricas Construction is the main contractor for the scheme, with RLF and Naismiths as EA and QS respectively on the project.
“As with most development projects, it has not been without its challenges. We’re proud to have overcome these with a great team on board to get to this point, despite being in the middle of what is challenging economic conditions. Students will be able to move in and experience a new type of living from September 2021.”Anthony Laville, Founder and CEO, Volume.Property
The Volume.Works development – on Hanley Street in central Birmingham – is part of a larger PBSA scheme, with phase two to include a further 154 beds. Phase two is currently in planning for 107 beds, which is expected to receive a decision next month.
“We’re not into the typical student accommodation look and feel. Everything from amenities to the size of apartments sit outside of the norm for the sector. It’s exciting times ahead as we continue on our growth path.”Anthony Laville, Founder and CEO, Volume.Property
Volume.Property target major towns and cities across the UK – within the PBSA, coliving and PRS sectors. They are also behind a number of other developments in Birmingham including Bridge Street Studios, a student collection scheme in central Birmingham consisting of 70 flats – with construction due to begin this month. In addition, the developer also has a number of PRS schemes in the pipeline.
