County Down based Graham has completed the ambitious Little Patrick Street accommodation in Belfast City centre ahead of the new academic year.

The project, carried out for Lacuna Developments and Watkin Jones Group for leading UK wide provider Student Roost, will ramp up the student accommodation offering in the city with a host of facilities and amenities.

Construction on the 12-storey, 430-bed site began in 2018 and over two years has given way to a contemporary student provision with multiple facilities. During the project’s 24 month duration 1,070 construction workers have gone through the turnstiles.

Speaking about the building, Paul Rush, Site Manager from Graham, said, “This project has been completed amid the most unprecedented circumstances, Covid-19 presented some challenges, but we are extremely proud of the concluded offering.

“We believe that this site will offer students studying at Ulster or Queen’s universities a premium accommodation setting in which they will thrive.”
